myopia = nearsighted, hyperopia = farsighted.

20/15 in Snellen chart means that the person can see at a distance of 20 feet what most other people can see at 15 feet. (A person with 20/15 vision can see objects at 20 feet that a person with 20/20 vision can only see at 15 feet.) It would be my understanding, then, that this person is farsighted since they are able to see things at distances further than what is considered normal.

Hypocalcemia causes hyperactive tendon reflexes... Hope this helps.:)

Can anyone help me with navigation on this site?...I am attempting to access Run for your life...I have friends at this center who don't know what they just signed on for. The last manager was fired because a pt died there when shortstaffed but the other 3 nurses involved got a slap on the wrist. 2 of them went on to manage the center for 6 months til they could trick someone else into the managership. The other one was tranferred to another center.
