Intracranial Pressure and Its Effect on Vision in Space and on Earth: Vision Impairment in Space.

Macias BR, Liu JHK, Otto C, Hargens AR, editors.

Hackensack, NJ: World Scientific, 2017. 291 p.

http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/9545#t=toc 

Note: From the introductory chapter: "The following chapters are a summary of early attempts by the space medicine community to understand adaptations to microgravity and solve spaceflight-induced vision impairment." The individual chapters are listed below. They review the various aspects of vision impairment related to intracranial pressure during spaceflight. While most of the chapters were not funded directly by NASA, the knowledge and experience gathered in the chapters was made possible through research performed under grants from the NASA Human Research Program.
