An anopsia is a defect in the visual field. If the defect is only partial, then the portion of the field with the defect can be used to isolate the underlying cause.

Types of partial anopsia:

  • Hemianopsia
    • Homonymous hemianopsia
    • Heteronymous hemianopsia
      • Binasal hemianopsia
      • Bitemporal hemianopsia
    • Superior hemianopia
    • Inferior hemianopia
  • Quadrantanopia

The term anopsia comes from the Ancient Greek ἀν- (an-),"un-" and ὄψις (opsis) "sight".
