Armstrong, Richard A. (1995). Alzheimer's disease and vision: a proposed new diagnostic test. Optometry Today, 1995 (July), pp. 16-17.


A potential non-invasive neurobiological test for Alzheimer's disease has been recently proposed and published. This test is likely to be of considerable interest to optometrists as it involves measurements of pupil dilation. This article decsribes some of the controversial issues surrounding the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and discusses the advantages, limitations, and implications of the new test.
