An analysis of 132 images indicated that many people wear the device near or overlapping their pupillary axis (a line perpendicular to the surface of the cornea, passing through the center of the pupil), which may induce scotomas

2007) showed that individuals with Stargardt's disease often choose an area below the scotoma
Optic neuritis is bilateral and severe or associated with a swollen optic nerve or chiasm lesion or an altitudinal scotoma

Two years later, the right scotoma
There were three adolescents who did report visual adverse events, which are not mentioned in the Ortho Tri-Cyclen product label: a 14-year-old patient also on oxcarbazepine who was reported to have papilledema and cluster headache; a 16-year old patient also on doxycycline and tretinoin, who experienced scotoma
, blurred vision, headache and influenza-like illness; and a 16-year old patient also on isotretinoin and prednisone, who had a visual-field defect, in addition to benign intracranial hypertension and increased cerebrospinal fluid pressure.
This tradition might have something exciting and radical to teach us and the wider world that would propel us all out of the scotosis and scotoma
that Longeran diagnosed and that Jon Nilson explores in this volume.
Damage to this area from diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), causes the loss of central vision in the form of a central scotoma
