- complicated metamorphopsia
- The term complicated metamorphopsia comes from the Latin verb complicare (to fold together), 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) that is accompanied by an alteration in the affective tone of one's experience of the extracorpo-real environment, analogous to cases of*kalopsia or *kakopsia (i.e. seeing things as beautiful or ugly, respectively). The term complicated meta-morphopsia is used in opposition to the term * simple metamorphopsia.ReferencesCritchley, M. (1953). The parietal lobes. London: Edward Arnold & Co.Willanger, R., Klee, A.
