Altitude and Eyesight
June 9, 2015 - I don't think I mentioned the variation in my eyesight as we climbed the mountain. I've had both RK and Lasik on my eyes. As we ascended Mt. Kilimanjaro, I noticed a shift in my eyesight specifically related to reading. My other vision was fine. I learned later that high altitude climbers have experienced a fluctuation in their eyesight if they have had corrective vision surgery. My eyesight reverted to normal as soon as we descended and departed from the mountain.
