Pronounced: verg-bij-uh-RAY-shuhn, noun
Notes: I didn’t know this word
The word entoptic means “relating to images that originate within the eye” (as opposed to images resulting from light entering the eye).
Our word came into English in the late 1800s
Background / Comments
One type of entoptic images are the so-called “floaters”. Another type would be the images one gets if one presses lightly upon the closed eyelids. Our word comes from a combination of Greek words: ento- (within) and optic (relating to the eye or sight).
