Explanation Of The Results Of Examination Of Sharp Eyesight?
Earlier I checked my eyes, and the results were 6/9 6/9 what did that mean
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Sharp examination aims to measure how well a person can see at close and far distances. In this examination, patients are asked to sit at a distance of 6 meters to read the letters listed on the Snellen diagram, ranging from the largest letters to smaller ones. The right and left eyes are examined alternately. The best sharp vision of a patient is determined by the bottom line of letters that can still be read correctly by the patient.
Normal vision is 6/6. This means that normal people are able to see objects (Snellen's diagram) at a distance of 6 meters, and patients who are examined can see objects at a distance of 6 meters.
Sharp vision 6/9 means that patients need a distance of 6 meters to be able to see an object that can actually be seen by people with normal sharp vision at a distance of 9 meters. Writing "6/9" twice is intended that both your right and left eyes have the same sharp vision, which is 6/9. We recommend that you consult further with the doctor who examined you regarding the results of the examination.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
