Hi,

is there a word for both eyes? OD and OS is used separately but is there any word/short form to indicate both eyes?

Hi Sagar,

Yes, there is a specific word to indicate both the eyes.

OD = oculus dexter = right eye

OS = oculus sinister = left eye

OD + OS = OU

OU stands for oculus uterque, which means both the eyes.

Regards,

Sri
