Researchers at the University of Minnesota announced a new noninvasive eye exam for possible early detection of Alzheimer’s.
This new study is designed to detect changes in the retina that appear linked to early Alzheimer’s disease. So far the study has been successful in mice.
They’re now looking for volunteers, both those healthy from age 40 to 75, and persons with Alzheimers up to age 80. You can find out more at their website
This study sounds promising. Imagine — a noninvasive exam that could detect early disease before it become symptomatic, maybe even as part of a routine eye exam.
