Q:What are some serious ocular findings (ie. not corneal arcus) that can co-exist in a patient who is able to achieve 20/20 OU when refracted?

just for fun...

I'd bet the 20/20 disease list is as long or longer than the not 20/20 list.
yeah, but I just wanted to get students thinking about the diseases that can co-exist with the finding of 20/20. I remember one student telling another that if you find 20/20, you can be sure that nothing is wrong! Can you believe that? :eek:

-Many of the gamut of binocular vision disorders
-Not exactly serious, but everyone's favorite (soon-to-be favorite, or inevitably favorite), presbyopia.

Both of which may seriously impact a person's life from childhood to adulthood depending on management or treatment.
