Medical - Medical (general) / optometry/ophthalmology
German term or phrase: A and E (in eye exam results)
Specifically, in the results for angle of deviation – here's the sentence:

Schielwinkel; Ferne E 0^, A -VD1^ Rebl.. 0^, Llbl.: -1^, Aufbl/Abbl.: 0^ Nähe 0^, A -4^

Could the E = Ein(something) and the A = Aus(something)? (I'm guessing that the carets are supposed to be superscript deltas.)

English translation:alternating and unilateral cover test
Explanation:
Also see discussion.
All circumspection:
Someone has posted their eye exam results on a forum:
"Covertest Ferne/Nähe latente -VD
APCT Ferne -VD 5^, Nähe +2^-VD 6^
Befund mit Prismenbrille
Covertest Ferne/Nähe geringe latente -VD
APCT Ferne/Nähe -VD 4^"

Where Covertest seems the same as Einseitiger Covertest / Uncovertest
and APCT is Alternierender Prismen-Covertest (see reference in discussion).

The E and A could also stand for Einseitiger Abdecktest and Alternierender Abdecktest.

Either way, unilateral cover test and and alternating cover test should cover these. The prism measures the angle.

Der einseitige Abdecktest dient zur Diagnose des manifesten Schielens. Der alternierende Abdecktest erlaubt es, den Schielwinkel mittels Prismenleiste auszumessen. Außerdem kann durch den alternierenden Abdecktest latentes Schielen erkannt weden.

Asker: Hmm, ich glaube nicht: Wenn E die Angabe wäre für die (E)instellbewegung, die beim (A)bdecktest stattfindet, was wäre dann A?? Trotzdem danke für den Link!
