Spectral composition of the underwater environment and the refractive state of the eye

, : Spectral composition of the underwater environment and the refractive state of the eye. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine 50(11): 1099-1101

Scientists and clinicians concerned with underwater vision have not considered the relationship between chromatic aberration, water color, and the refractive state of the eye. Recent research indicates that the red end of the visible spectrum is in focus when the eye is not accommodating. On this basis, and on the basis of the monochromatic nature of clear acquatic environments, it is suggested that divers may be myopic by as much as 1 D when underwater.

The water channels, aquaporins (AQPs) are key mediators of transcellular fluid transport. However, their expression and role in cardiac tissue is poorly characterized. Particularly, AQP1 was suggested to transport other molecules (nitric oxide (NO...
