Abstract: Purpose: To investigate the proportion of hyperopia among people with 20/20 uncorrected visual acuity Methods: We prospectively evaluated the percentage of hyperopia in 113 consecutive eyes of 70 patients with 20/20 uncorrected visual acuity and no ocular diseases. The mean (±standard deviation) age of the group was 55±11 (ranging 15 to 88) years old. The spherical equivalent of the subject refraction was used for the analysis. Results: The percentage of hyperopia (≧+0.25D) in the population was 53%. Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the first report that investigated the percentage of hyperopia in a group of people with 20/20 uncorrected visual acuity. We should recognize that eyes with 20/20 uncorrected visual acuity comprise a substantial proportion of hyperopia.
