If you were told you have 20/20 vision this means that you read at 20 feet the same that people with perfect vision read/see. If you were told that you have 20/30 vision, this means that what you can read comfortably at 20 feet, an optimal seeing person can see at 30 feet. Once you are at 20/40 you have half the vision of an optimal seeing person.

Outside of the million cases of heart disease per year, a newer diagnosis surfaced in 1991 initially in Japan. The condition called Broken Heart Syndrome (BHS), did not gain recognition in the US until 2004. BHS is not true heart disease as it occurs as a result of a stressful event.
