Medical - Medical: Health Care / optometry
Japanese term or phrase: 両眼開放
I think it means "both eyes open" but the 開放 part and the way the word is used in the sentence make me wonder if there is an equivalent English medical term.

One website that led me to the translation "both eyes open": http://www.sugiura.to/ryouganshi/ryouganshi.html
