Abstract

Parkinson's disease is a common neurodegenerative disorder of middle-aged and elderly people. There are two aspects of the disease of special interest to optometrists. First, visual problems may be present in a proportion of patients with the disease. In addition, the disease is treated by a variety of drugs, some of which may have ocular complications. This article describes the incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, causes and changes in the brain in Parkinson's disease.
