  • Abstract Rapid ascent during fishing capture can cause exophthalmia (‘pop eye’) in physoclistic fishes, resulting in stretching of the optic nerves and extraocular muscles, but it is not known whether exophthalmia affects vision temporarily or permanently. We used the optokinetic reflex test to assess changes in visual performance of rosy rockfish ( Sebastes rosaceus ) that had experienced exophthalmia. Vision was functional 4 days after recompression and was improved after 1 month of recovery… CONTINUE READING
