Explanation:
In Spanish the "dm" is "La desviación media es la media de las diferencias en valor absoluto de los valores a la media" it's a statistical measurement for a range of data (in this case the range is the different measurements for the "campo visual" of the patient), the English equivalent being the ABSOLUTE DEVIATION. See references.
