I have to admit that I should have said "my *corrected* eyesight is  
also better than 20/20" to be perfectly truthful, but I do wear my  
glasses at all waking hours.

I do need to get a new prescription at the moment, as it's been 3 or  
5 years since my last one and I have noticed degradation in the last  
few months. My eye tests have, however, been consistent over the last  
15 years - only slightly stronger glasses needed each time, and those  
have always given me better than 20/20 sight - and I'm still very  
aware of VDU quality.
