In brief: Check your state

"visual acuity screening standard is 20/40 or better with both eyes together, no worse than 20/70 in the poorer eye.
Drivers who fail the vision screening are referred to a vision specialist. Drivers with visual acuity of 20/200 or worse may not be licensed to drive. Drivers may use bioptic telescopes for driving, but may not use them to meet the vision standard".

In brief: 20/200

If your vision is 20/200 or worse, you are not allowed to schedule a driving test.
20/200 means that what you see something at 20 feet looks like what someone [with normal vision] sees at 200 feet. Hope this helps!
