Abstract : Aerospace ophthalmology combines the practice of Clinical Ophthalmology and Aerospace Medicine in attempting to solve the visual and ophthalmological problems of the aviator and astronaut. The Ophthalmology Branch of the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine has exclusively performed this task for nearly 75 years. The visual problems and solutions proposed are documented in the publications and invited presentations of Ophthalmology Branch personnel, listed in chronological order for the years 1981 through 1990. They deal primarily with applied visual and clinical topics; such as, visual standards for flying, the use of contact lenses in aviation, visual illusions and aircraft accidents, air-to-air target acquisition, management of glaucoma in flying personnel, etc.
