How to use "Miosis" in context?
Miosis is a medical condition in which one iris (the colored part of the eye) contracts to reduce the amount of light that enters the eye. This can be a temporary fixing of incompleteness of vision in cases like cataracts, or a more permanent problem in cases like glaucoma. Miosis can also be a side-effect of a number of medications, such as steroids, beta blockers, and chemotherapy.
