Did my optometrist give me semi-superhero vision?

I recently went in for an eye exam, current glasses are 3+ years old. My optometrist told me that my prescription has barely changed, and in some tests told me that I have 20/15 vision.
However, when I went to pick up my new glasses, everything was extremely sharp, even from long distances. The first thing I noticed was the texture of optometrists skin , then looking in the mirror at my face noticed all sorts of things that I'd never noticed before. (I guess my skin isn't as good as I thought)
Its like the sharpness knob got turned to 11, everything is crystal clear. Lighted signs at night are especially beautiful, and when I arrived home, I almost got a sensory overload seeing how pretty the carpet fibers looked.
Whats going on? Did my all previous optometrists give me regular 20/20 glasses and this one gave me 20/15? (does that make sense? or is even possible?). I was expecting to get a headache from the new prescription, but no issues over from last night and this morning.
