PURPOSE Exposure to high altitude leads to a series of alterations of higher nervous functions because of hypobaric hypoxia. Sensory systems, mainly the visual one, seem to be particularly involved. This study aimed to assess the effects of hypoxemic hypoxia on the transmission of the visual stimulus simulating a condition of breathing at an altitude of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to verify the ocular comfort of a fixed topical combination of brinzolamide 1% plus timolol 0.5% suspension vs. dorzolamide 2% plus timolol 0.5% solution, both preserved with benzalkonium chloride (BAK), in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) through subjective and objective methods. BAK is the most(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying ocular hydrodynamics and the changes which occur in the eyes of subjects exposed to hypobaric hypoxia (HH) to permit the achievement of more detailed knowledge in glaucomatous disease. METHODS Twenty male subjects, aged 32±5 years, attending the Italian Air Force, were(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of luminance variations, as well as the oral administration of a food supplement, on the visual bioelectric response while using of Night Vision Goggles (NVG). METHODS Two trials were performed, both enrolling healthy male aircrew members wearing NVG, and recording Visual Evoked Potentials (VEPs) from scalp electrodes. Both(More)
BACKGROUND Effects of hypobarism and hypoxia on visual performance and mainly on contrast sensitivity (CS) are well known. The purpose of this study was to compare the adjustments of corneal thickness in hypobaric hypoxia conditions with changes in contrast sensitivity. METHODS There were 12 healthy, emmetropic subjects assigned to the 14(th) Wing Aircrew(More)
