The eye in extreme environments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Much is known about the physiology and anatomy of the eye. Much less is known about the impact of different environments on the eye, and yet it is the pathophysiology that results from this interaction that is often the precursor to disaster. The present review focuses on the effect of different extreme environments on the visual system: in particular, the manner in which such environments affect the sensory mechanism of that system.
