The included eye exam will determine your visual acuity, which compares your vision to the 20/20 standard. Read on to find out what this metric really means.

20/20 Vision: An Imperfect Ratio

Possessing 20/20 vision may be considered perfect, a level of visual acuity reserved for Navy pilots and the bald eagles that train them, but in fact it's not even close to average. Developed by Dutch optometrist Hermann Snellen in the 1860s, the 20/20 standard is a somewhat arbitrary distinction. After inventing his now-iconic eye chart?which consists of lines of standardized letters that get progressively smaller?Snellen also instituted the concept of a ratio to define the clarity of a patient's vision. The denominator represents how many feet away a person of normal visual acuity could stand while still discerning the letters with the same level of clarity as the patient. In other words, 20/40 vision means the patient needs to stand 20 feet away to make out the same size letters as a person with standard vision can from 40 feet.

Because the 20/20 standard is arbitrary, many people actually have considerably better eyesight, represented by such ratios as 20/15 or 20/10. In fact, in the U.S., the average visual acuity is sharper than 20/20 until about age 60 or 70, when people's vision naturally starts to decline as their bangs finally grow past their eyes. Also, though it's useful for determining basic shortcomings of vision, an eye chart can't diagnose a proper glasses or contact prescription. To determine that, optometrists test many other factors, including depth perception, peripheral vision, x-ray vision, and focusing skills.

Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.

In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.

The professional visionaries at Eye Designs see to ocular health while also attending to mid-face fashion with a variety of designer frames. Give struggling eyeballs an intelligent look with frames from such sharp brands as Ted Baker ($150), Genevieve Boutique (Rene frames, $120), or Gucci 2769 Strass ($300).

Near- and far-sighted customers can also fill frames with a choice of basic and advanced lenses, such as the SV lens ($100), polycarbonate lens ($115), and SV Transition lens ($155). Eye Designs' experts can help determine what lens type will work best for each customer depending on ocular health, lifestyle, and eye strain from staring at heavy objects.

Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
