What is a floater?
A condition in which the crystalline lens of the eye, or its capsule, or both, become opaque, with consequent loss of visual activity
A refractive error in which the eyeball is too long in relation to focusing power, thus the point of focus for rays of light from distant objects falls in front of the retina.
A refractive error in which the eyeball is too short in relation to the refractive power of the lens. The point of focus for rays of light from distant objects falls behind the retina; accommodating to increase refractive power of the lens is necessary for distance and near vision
What is a latent hyperope?
+/- .75 correction needed, but can accommodate; on its own, the eye will do the work
A refractive error that prevents light from coming to a single focus on the retina because of a different degree of refraction in the various meridians of the eye.
A refractive condition in which rays of light come to 2 focal points is correctable with a cylinder lens
Simple Myopic Astigmatism
The refractive condition where 1 point of focus falls on the retina and the other point of focus falls in front of the retina
Compound Myopic Atigmatism
The refractive error which results in 2 points of focus falling in front of the retina
Simple Hyperopic Astigmatism
The refractive condition where one point of focus falls on the retina and the other point of focus falls behind the retina
Compound Hyperopic Astigmatism
The refractive error which results in two points of focus falling in behind the retina
A refractive condition in which light comes to two points of focus, where one point falls in front of the retina and the other behind the retina
