Tuesday Talk

Dr. Tyson Brunstetter

AFOS Member, Dr. Tyson Brunstetter, will be presenting an excellent 2 hr COPE course titled: "An Update on Spaceflight Associated Neuro-ocular Syndrome (SANS) and its Risk to NASA Astronauts".

Dr. Tyson Brunstetter retired from the U.S. Navy last year after nearly 25 years of service. During his military career, he served primarily in Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) roles in Navy and Joint commands, working within areas such as laser eye protection; helmet-mounted cueing systems for tactical aircraft; advanced refractive surgery; and deployable battlefield medical devices. In 2010, he deployed to Expeditionary Medical Facility (EMF) Kuwait as the sole DoD eye care provider for allied warfighters in Kuwait and southern Iraq as part of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).

He earned his Doctor of Optometry (OD), Master of Science, and PhD degrees from the Ohio State University, and an Executive MBA from the Naval Postgraduate School. He was “winged” as a Navy Aerospace Optometrist in 2002 and earned Board Certification as an Aerospace Physiologist in 2006. He is a Fellow of the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) and the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) and has been an Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS) member since 1996.

Dr. Brunstetter now serves within the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) Space Medicine Operations Division as Clinical Lead (Eyes & Vision) in the efforts to unravel and mitigate a newly-discovered syndrome affecting astronauts during long-duration spaceflight, Spaceflight Associated Neuro-ocular Syndrome (SANS).
