    20/20

    twenty-twenty
    I hear that '20/20' means:
    1. meeting a standard of normal visual acuity
    2. marked by accurate judgment
    Could I have some sample sentences for both?
    Thank you.

    I am unfamiliar with the second definition, but maybe that is the one that is used in the common saying, "Hindsight is always 20/20".

    Hi Itasan
    .
    Yes, people do say "hindsight is 20/20". A person who is critical of someone else's decision (after the fact and after previously unknown facts are known) might be sarcastically accused of having "20/20 hindsight" and might also be called a "Monday morning quarterback".
