This is a research study that involves NASA and Baylor College of Medicine to determine the effectiveness of a new noninvasive device Multispectral Imaging (MSI) in identifying retinal and choroidal pathologies, more specifically optic disc swelling as seen in a condition called Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH).
The study's objective is to determine the usefulness of this new noninvasive device called MSI in early detection of IIH, as some astronauts have returned from space missions with detectable changes in visual acuity and disc swelling-the hallmark of IIH as well as other neuro-ophthalmological changes.
This is a three month study that observes patients and take a picture of their optic nerves with the MSI instrument during a visit that is a visit performed in their normal standard of care management of their IIH.
Patients receive a remuneration for their participation.
