    Abstract

    A 58-year-old man presented with a change in vision during hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy. Subsequent follow-up visits showed a hypermetropic shift, which succeeded the myopic shift after each of two series of HBO treatments. The maximal refractive amplitude was 3.00 D (range -1.37 D to +1.62 D) in the right eye and 2.75 D (range -1.25 D to + 1.50 D) in the left eye. Refraction stabilized after 1.5 years at +0.62 D and +0.50 D to pretreatment values in the right and left eye, respectively. The findings are discussed with regard to possible changes in the structure of the lens.
