In the light of previous reports, to examine the possibility that professional diving might cause abnormalities of the retina and choroid.
Methods-The retinal fluorescein angiograms of 55 Royal Naval divers and 24 non-diver servicemen were compared.
No differences were found between divers and non-divers and the prevalence of abnormalities was not correlated with diving experience.
Conclusion-In contrast to previous reports, there seem, at least in naval personnel, to be no ocular consequences of diving.
