(58) Individuals with AiWS also experience 'dysmetropsia,' an umbrella term given to a collection of symptoms including changes in the apparent size of objects (micropsia/macropsia) as well as a sense that objects are either very far away (teleopsia) or extremely close (pelopsia).
These symptoms were also associated with either visual illusions, including dysmetropsia, namely, macropsia and micropsia (objects or other people appearing bigger or smaller) and telopsia and pelopsia (objects or other people appearing respectively further or nearer), or disorders of consciousness, as feelings of derealization, depersonalization, somatopsychic duality (i.e., the idea to be split in two, more often vertically in the middle), and alteration in judgment of time.
