A 35-year-old member asked:
can your contact lens prescription tell you what kind of vision you have (ie. 20/20)?

No: Your prescription tells you if you are myopic, hyperopic, and/or if you have astigmatism. It doesn't tell you how far down the chart you can read, but with the correct prescription you should see 20/20 assuming no ocular pathology to limit your vision potential.
