AIDS: neurological and ophthalmological aspects

Armstrong, Richard A. (1993). AIDS: neurological and ophthalmological aspects. Optometry Today, 1993 (June), pp. 32-33.


Although overt ocular symptoms are not often encountered in AIDS patients, many exhibit subtile neuro-ophthalmic signs and symptoms. This article describes the neuropsychiatric symptoms as well as the neuro-ophthalmic conditions which have been reported recently in AIDS patients. The degree to which optometrists may be vulnerable to the AIDS virus from contact with patients in practice will also be discussed.
