PURPOSE The retina has been found affected in Parkinson's disease (PD). It is unclear if this is due to neurodegeneration of local dopamine-dependent retinal cells, a result of central nervous degeneration including the optic nerve or retinal small vessel disease. This study aimed to detect changes of the retinal vasculature in PD patients compared to controls. METHODS We examined 49 PD patients and 49 age- and sex-matched healthy controls by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD… CONTINUE READING
