Early Detection of Dementia Possible With Eye and Smell Test
Researchers at Moorfields eye hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology have successfully developed a means of early detection for dementia, a disease that reduces a person’s cognitive ability and memory, and is a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease.
New and Improved Treatment Option for Common Eye Condition.
