What is 20/20 visual acuity?

20/20 simply means that a person can read a standard size letter at a standard testing distance of 20 feet. This commonly used notation is called Snellen Acuity. In other words, 20/60 means that what should be seen at 60 feet away requires the patient to move up to 20 feet away to be able to see the same letter.
