Richard A. Armstrong

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder affecting middle-aged and elderly people. The disorder is of particular interest to Optometrists because it is associated with a range of visual problems including defects in eye movement and pupillary function. This article reviews the visual complications of PD and the pathological changes in the eye and brain which may explain these symptoms.
