Vision in Parkinson's Disease (Closed to Recruitment)
This purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of the changes in visual processing that take place in different forms of Parkinson’s Disease over time and help measure effectiveness of future treatments.
This study has now closed to recruitment.
Findings so far:
It has been found that there are alterations in the visual function from the retina to the cortical brain regions in people with Parkinson's Disease with some aspects of this worsening as the disease progresses. This suggests that visual measures and retinal structure may be useful to predict dementia in Parkinson's disease.
