- 9Trouble figuring out which eye is which?
OS is left eye
OD is the right eye
You can remember which one is the right eye (OD), because you can make the D into an R - You just have to draw to stick legs on the bottom of the D. Write it down on paper, you'll see what I mean (it's hard to show you when all I can do is type)Last edit by mopnglo42 on Apr 21, '06
