Meaning of PERRLA in charting?

  1. I am studying eye examinations for Health Assessment and this abbreviation came up. I don't see an explanation in the text (doesn't mean it isn't there!)

    Where do you look in general for abbreviations used in charting? I have what seems a library's worth of books and I am happy to do the legwork myself but a little direction would be most appreciated.

    Has anyone seen this abbreviation before?

    Thanks in advance!
