INTRODUCTION Astronauts experience alterations in gaze control as a result of adaptive changes in eye-head coordination produced by microgravity exposure. This may lead to potential changes in postflight visual acuity during head and body motion. METHODS We gathered dynamic visual acuity (DVA) data from 14 astronauts and cosmonauts after long-duration (approximately 6 mo) stays in space. Walking was used to induce self-motion and visual acuity was determined by sequentially presenting Landolt… CONTINUE READING
