Visual Structure and Function in Collision Sport Athletes
Conclusions: This study showed that retinal axonal and neuronal loss is present among collision sport athletes, with most notable differences seen in boxers. These findings are accompanied by reductions in visual function and QOL, similar to patterns observed in multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases. Vision-based changes associated with head trauma exposure that have the potential to be detected in vivo represent a unique opportunity for further study to determine if these changes in collision sport athletes are predictive of future neurodegeneration.

Visual hallucinations resolved once vision returned to baseline. We highlight the possibility of transient CBS in postoperative patients who have temporary iatrogenic vision impairment in one or both eyes.
