Pronounced: verg-bij-uh-RAY-shuhn, noun

Notes: I didn’t know this word

Yesterday’s word

The word entoptic means “relating to images that originate within the eye” (as opposed to images resulting from light entering the eye).

First usage

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).
