Memorizing amaurosis medical term meaning

Struggling Student's Memory Guide shows students ways association and mnemonics can be applied to educational challenges instead of relying on rote memorization.

blue emboldened words are common or college terms that can be use for association purposes. [I could find no common terms that can be associated to amaurosis.]

reddish brown emboldened words are medical terms that should be looked up in a medical dictionary for their figurative meaning.

Medical term and memory story from High Speed Memory Techniques for Medical Terminology.

amaurosis from Gr. amauros, darkness, obscure, means "blindness without change to the eye itself".

Memory Story: Any Frenchman can tell you amor is (amaurosis) blind but it doesn't affect the eyes - just the brain, the heart, the stomach and a variety of other parts.
