Explanation Of The Results Of Eye Examinations?
Tonight, I want to ask, what do my eye tests result for 15/20 20/20 mean?
Good evening Leni, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
The results of eye examinations which are generally stated in the form as you are asking at this time are generally the results of a sharp eye examination (eye vision). Your right eye test result is 15/20 which means that you can only read the letters listed on the eye examination board from a distance of 15 feet (4 meters) where people with normal vision can read these letters from a distance of 20 feet (6 meters). As for the results of your left eye test, it means that you can read these letters from a distance of 20 feet, whereas people with normal vision can also read these letters at a distance of 20 feet.
From the results of the survey, it can be interpreted that your right eye has a visual impairment which can be caused by a number of conditions such as nearsightedness, cylindrical eyes, irritation to the cornea of the eye, cataracts, and others. While your left eye has no visual impairment or can be said to be normal. To find out the cause and also the right treatment for the visual impairment that you are experiencing, then you should do further consultation directly with an ophthalmologist.
I hope this helps.
