Hello doctor,

What is meant by 6/6 right eye, 6/6 left eye and 6/5 uniocular vision with glasses?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

In laymen terms, 6 by 6 means scientificly defined perfect vision. In medical terms, 6 by 6 means what you see from six meters, a person with normal vision also sees it from 6 metres. 6 by 5 means what a normal person sees from 5 metres you see it from 6 metres only means better than normal vision. In this case, 6 by 5 is possible with spectacles.
