i just can't stop giggling when i hear it! any other fun optometry words out there?
Heh, I never really thought about that, I don't think.
Of course there's Progressive Outer Retinal Necrosis Syndrome.
That one always seems to stick out when I'm flipping through Mass Eye.
Though I guess it's not so much a funny word as it is a funny acronym.
Sorry to crimp your fun, but I think its called a phoropter with an "f" sound at the beginning.
Surely a BV guy knows what a horopter is!? Look it up.
wow, I haven't thought about the horopter since Part 1 I can't say I'm sad it's gone
too funny! yes i know the differnce between a phoropter and a horopter. we just started learning about horopters in class yesterday, so fun!
Ahh, got ya. Sorry I was a little slow on that one.
As Kelso on 'That 70's Show' would say... BURN!!!!! Good to see that you're still on top of things Matt! How's life in the West Bank?
Unfortunately the only thing funny about a horopter is its name. Have fun with the Ogle curves.
Another good term would be the Schiotz tonometer, which has given rise to such phrases as:
I'm the schiotz
Drop it like it's schiotz
Fuch this schiotz
Ok, I'll drop my age and add in.
How about good old MUCIN BALLS!
I got a real kick the first time I heard that optometrists "fogg" their patients. "Fogging" a stranger seemed inappropriate to me
What about Fuchs' crypts, or the valleys of Kuhnt? Those sound a little more dirty than a horopter
