When are patients with intraocular gas able to fly?

Book an appointment. Tell us what date and time you prefer

When they have very little gas, i.e. one fifth or less in the eyeball, they can travel by air without a problem. If, however, they have a larger amount, they cannot fly, because the change in air pressure makes the gas bubble expand, which can cause ocular hypertension and damage the optic nerve.
