1. Abbreviation for vision or visual acuteness. The acuteness of vision is indicated by a fraction in which the numerator is a number expressing the distance in feet of the observer from the chart (usually 20 feet), and the denominator a number expressing the distance in feet at which the normal eye would see the smallest letters which the patient sees at the distance at which he is; thus, if at 20 feet he sees only the letters which the normal eye would see at 50 feet, the formula of his vision will be V. =20/50 2. Chemical symbol for vanadium.

Is the twenty-second letter of the alphabet, and a labial articulation, formed by the junction of the upper teeth with the lower lip, as in pronouncing av, ev, ov, vain. It is nearly allied to f, being formed by the same organs; but v is vocal, and f is aspirate. As a Roman numeral, v stands for 5, and with a dash over it for 5,000.
