Anyone with a knowledge of opthalmology knows I'm right.
Nobody said you're wrong, Miller.
But what's 'right' on an opthalmology final isn't necessarily the 'correct' answer in a crossword puzzle, the asnwer the puzzle maker s looking for. I've seen more clues in a crossword that I consider totally and ridiculously misapplied than you can shake a stick at. * Point is, the person who wrote the puzzle was trying to puzzle us, not educate us.
*case in point: today's Sunday Globe puzzle has a three-letter word with the clue "explosive stick." Answer turns out to be TNT. TNT is not a stick; it's a nitroglycerine-based chemical compound. Trinitrotoluene. It's the main ingredient in dynamite, which would be the "stick." So the puzzle maker is "wrong." But why would I quibble as long as I can come up with the answer that;s being sought?
