Visual symptoms in Parkinson's disease - Armstrong RA; Department of Vision Sciences, Aston University, Birmingham UK.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common disorder of middle-aged and elderly people …. In some patients, … there are additional disturbances in sensory systems including loss of the sense of smell and auditory and/or visual problems.
Changes in vision in PD may result from alterations in visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, colour discrimination, pupil reactivity, eye movements, motion perception, visual field sensitivity, and visual processing speeds.
Slower visual processing speeds can also lead to a decline in visual perception especially for rapidly changing visual stimuli.
In addition, there may be disturbances of visuospatial orientation, facial recognition problems, and chronic visual hallucinations. Some of the treatments used in PD may also have adverse ocular reactions.
