Great eye doc, very in depth exam. Will probably be my new eye doc. The $200 credit isn't good because you'll still end up paying $300 with the coupon for designer eye glasses. Also, be aware that it's an additional $50 for a contact fitting and exam.

Just left the offices and I had a great time there. Doctor was very knowledgeable and (the best part) he took the time with being with patient. I asked numerous questions, all being answered very clearly. The staff that help me choose my frames were very friendly and helped me with my plan as well. I plan to recommend this place to my friends and family!

The doctor told me more about my eyes than I ever heard before, well worth the Groupon, he's super knowledgeable and has an supremely friendly and inviting staff!

20/20 Vision: An Imperfect Ratio

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.

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 United States, 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.
