Can't I just get glasses?
Having good visual acuity (20/20) does not ensure good vision. Prescription glasses are a major part of optimizing vision. The correct prescription allows for good visual acuity. The act of vision is the complex neurological processing of information in the brain and integrating this information into the rest of our dominant senses. This allows us to visually process information for planning and learning.
