What is visual acuity?

Your doctor can detect changes or problems in your vision with a visual acuity test. Visual acuity tests find the smallest letters you can see on a standard eye chart. Visual acuity is the sharpness of your vision.

  • The farther down an eye chart you can see, the better your visual acuity
  • Seeing more eye chart letters than before means that vision is getting better
  • Seeing fewer eye chart letters than before means that vision is getting worse

Visual acuity is expressed as a fraction such as 20/40 or a single number such as 1.5.

The larger the bottom number in the fraction or the higher the single number, the less sharp your vision is

Following up with your doctor is necessary for tracking your vision over time.
