- The term telopsia comes from the Greek words tèle (far) and opsis (seeing). It is used to denote a visual distortion in which stationary objects appear to be further away than they are. Telop-sia is classified either as a *metamorphopsia or as a * dysmetropsia. The term is used in opposition to the term * pelopsia. It should not be confused with the notions of *micropsia and *teleopsia.ReferencesEy, H. (2004). Traité des hallucinations. Tome 1. Paris: Claude Tchou pour la Bibliothèque des Introuvables.
