Spaceflight neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS) poses the second-most serious risk to human health during extended spaceflight missions. Understanding how it occurs and may be prevented is crucial in the planning of exploration space missions such as travel to Mars. Evidence for various mechanisms by which SANS develops and might be treated or mitigated will be presented.
