Alzheimer’s disease to be diagnosed with simple eye test


The researchers from the Lancaster University in UK have said that a simple eye test can now make it easier to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Trevor Crawford has said that the latest results are potentially exciting.

For the first time they showed that physical connection with the memory impairment which is so often first noticeable symptom in Alzheimer’s. Crawford said that at present the diagnosis of the disease is heavily dependent on the results of a series of neuropsychological tests. But the patients of dementia have found that these tests are difficult to complete due to lack of clear understanding and lapse in their attention or motivation.
