_________ refers to the slight coming together of the eyes when the focus is shifted from far to near.
_________ is a thin, gray-white arc or circle, not quite at the edge of the cornea, caused by lipid deposits.
__________ (crossed-eyes) is a manifest lack of parallelism of the visual axis of the eyes, resulting in the absence of binocular fixation.
__________ ("lazy eye") is caused by a disruption of the normal development of vision, that results in reduced visual acuity that is not correctable by refractive means.

An individual is visually impaired if the best corrected distant visual acuity in the better eye is _____/_____ or less, or if the visual fields are significantly restricted.
______ _______ is defined as visual acuity for distant vision of 20/200 or less in the better eye with best correction.
Visual acuity should be tested for each eye in turn, using a ________ chart (alphabet or "E" chart).
Visual acuity is expressed as two numbers: the first indicates the distance of the patient from the ____, and the second, the distance at which a normal eye can read the line of letters.
Vision of 20/200 means that at ___ feet the patient can read print that a person with normal vision could read at _____ feet.
_______ _______ pupils are small, irregular pupils that accommodate but do not react to light, seen in central nervous system syphilis.

A _________ is an acute development of a small abscess within a gland of the upper or lower eyelid of one eye (most commonly the upper eyelid).
An _______ hordeolum, also known as a sty, is smaller and is caused by inflammation and infection of the glands of Moll or Zeis, with abscess formation in those glands.
An ________ hordeolum is a meibomian gland abscess that is situated deep from the palpebral margin, and points onto the conjunctival surface of the lid.
________ is a common granulomatous inflammation of a meibomian gland that may follow an internal hordeolum.
_________ is defined as an inward turning (inversion) of the eyelid and lashes (usually the lower).
__________ is infection and inflammation of the lacrimal sac due to obstruction of the nasolacrimal system.
