Correctable to 20/20?!

Question: Correctable to 20/20!?
I have a contact prescription of -2!.5 diopters in one eye and -2!.0 diopters in another!. Does anyone know if my vision can be corrected to 20/20!? I am wondering because I am 14 years old and hope to join the army when I graduate!.

I also heard you see better in glasses than you do in contacts (with the same prescription) - is that true!? My glasses are two to three years old and I can see about 20/40 with them and they are a lower prescription!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

You will have to call your eye doctor for an acurate answer to this question!. Your prescription does not affect whether or not your corrected vision is 20/20!. Your eye doctor would have measured your corrected vision and so will know what it is!.

"Correctable to 20/20" means that you can see 20/20 when wearing glasses or contacts!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

It could be improved a little bit but not to 20/20!.

Contact lens (if they suit you) actually give you a better field of vision!. They also correct your vision a bit more than glasses!.

However, if you're glasses are a weaker prescription wear them!. Each time try lowering your prescription!.

Anyway, it is best to consult the optometrist!. Glasses are better than contact lens as they are safer!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

If you have normal healthy eyes, it would be reasonable to assume you will obtain 20/20 vision with a recent exam!. Most people actually feel that they see better in contacts then glasses!. Get a new exam and have the glasses updated and ask the doctor what your visual acuity will be with the new prescription!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

my husband has way worse eyesight -6!.50 in one eye and -6!.75 and his eyes are correctable to 20/20 just fine and he served in the marine corps and it was never an issue the only issue ever was the BCG's u will have to wear in boot camp lol [ Birth Control Glasses] because they are so hideous no girl would wanna but that's just for a few weeks ha ha and if u need glasses get your script and try ordering on line like a zenni optical so cheap u can't go wrong its no waste of money - try glasses on in the store then take note of what you like then order online save some money for important things like - parting lol
have fun your eyes are not bad at all don't worry about it anymore!Www@Answer-Health@Com
