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 85 years. The visual problems and solutions proposed are documented in the publications and invited presentations of Ophthalmology Branch personnel, listed for the years 1971 through 1980. 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, the effect of ultra violet energy on the eye, laser energy effects on the eye, laser protective filters, color vision standards, microstrabismus in flying personnel, etc.
