A recent article by Brean Joseph published in the National Post on April 13th, 2013 reveals that scientists are studying the retina for abnormalities that could indicate the early onset of Parkison’s and Alzheimer’s disease. The goal of the studies is to develop a test that could lead to the early diagnosis of these two debiliting diseases. According to the study, by the time a patient sees their doctor with symptoms of memory loss or tremor the illness have progressed to the point where they do not respond well to the treatment available.
