Frequency of ophthalmologic symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s Disease

Takeaway

  • People with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are significantly more likely to suffer from ophthalmologic conditions than healthy controls.

Why this matters

  • Limited evidence suggests that ophthalmological conditions are under-reported in people with PD and may contribute to an increased risk of falls and fall-related injuries.

  • Few studies have evaluated the effects of ophthalmologic conditions on daily functioning and quality of life (QoL) in people with PD.
