Podcast: Vision Problems in Parkinson's Disease

In this month's Third Thursdays Webinar, our expert panelists address an often under-recognized Parkinson's symptom -- vision problems. Parkinson's patient John Merchant joined Marta Fabrykowski, OD, FAAO, an optometrist at Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital and Ali Hamedani, MD, MHS, an instructor in the Division of Neuro-Ophthalmology at the University of Pennsylvania, in a discussion moderated by Karen Jaffe, a member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Patient Council. During the webinar, they cover:

  • How dry eyes and impaired eye movement such as double vision and depth perception can be symptoms of Parkinson's,
  • If DBS can relieve or worsen vision problems, and
  • How eye changes related to alpha-synuclein and eye movement could help track Parkinson's progression.
