- monocular metamorphopsia
- The term monocular metamorphopsia comes from the Greek monos (only), the Latin oculus (eye), and the Greek words metamorphoun (to change the form) and opsis (seeing). It is used to denote a type of * metamorphopsia (i.e. a visual distortion) limited to a single eye. Monocular metamorphopsia is classified as a peripheral or retinal type of metamorphopsia. Pathophysio-logically, it is associated primarily with ocular pathology.ReferencesWillanger, R., Klee, A. (1966).
