Brief on 20/20 vision

20/20 vision is normal vision acuity, i.e. clarity or sharpness of vision measured at a distance of 20 feet. If someone has 20/20 vision, they can see clearly up to a distance of 20 feet. 20/20 vision is not perfect but is a sign of your good being.

To understand this notation better: A person can have 20/15 vision, which is sharper than average. On the other hand, someone with 20/100 vision will need to be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet.

Why is Vision Health important?

Eyes are often overlooked when overall health is talked about. It’s because of a lack of awareness. Masses don’t know the possible meaning behind healthy eye blinks. No worries tho, you are here, and we’ll make sure you learn for better.

You can also consider getting in touch with our team and Dr. William Columbus for assistance beyond the general. That is more personalized and medical.

A healthy vision is not only critical to keep you safe from injuries and major accidents but also a determinant of good health. Vision problems or low vision may be a signal of severe health conditions.

Let’s understand what your eyes are trying to show about your body.

Vision loss can increase the risk of death. Loss of sight interferes with a person’s ability to complete basic tasks. Also called IADL, instrumental activities of daily living. It includes activities like using the telephone, shopping, housework, and others, which are measures to live independently. Thus a decrease in IADL is associated with an increased risk of death.

Vision loss can be a red flag for other health issues. Vision is not only affected by aging. Health conditions like diabetes and hypertension can also cause eye problems. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Consistent high blood sugar levels can cause blurred vision.

Vision loss has links with depression. Researches have shown more than 10 percent of people living with vision loss reported symptoms of major depression. A study also found. The prevalence of depression was 11.3 percent among those with vision loss. Compared to 4.8 percent among people with no visual impairment.

Vision loss leads to anxiety. Vision loss is significantly related to symptoms of anxiety among older adults. Such people reported more inadequate levels of life quality.

Lesser field of vision, greater chances to fall! Loss of visual field width means the total area visible to someone is decreased. This can result in misinterpretation of surroundings and eventually harm.

Glaucoma raises the risk of auto accidents. Glaucoma is an eye disease that affects peripheral vision. People with advanced glaucoma had twice as many car accidents compared to people with normal 20/20 vision.

Vision correction – Ultimate step to good Vision health

A good vision, for most, is essential to perform fundamental activities involved in day-to-day life. A good vision contributes to overall well-being and independence for all ages. Vision changes, such as difficulty focusing or distinguishing colors, are common with age. But eye problems, particularly vision loss, are more than a nuisance. For which vision correction in any form becomes the only savior.

Suppose your vision is less than 20/20. Your very first steps to vision correction involve regular eye examination. It helps to analyze and detect major health risks earlier, leading to better treatment possibilities. A doctor of optometry can diagnose what is affecting your ability to see well in a comprehensive eye examination. Common vision problems usually don’t show early warning signs. Here the need for regular visits with your eye care professional becomes even more critical. Once the issue is detected, your doctor can prescribe corrective eyewear, medicine, or surgery. To minimize vision loss and help a person decide their best.
