A retinal eye scan may just be a bridge that could help discover other illnesses such as Parkinson’s Disease.
Retinal Eye Scan And Parkinson’s Disease
Having a retinal eye scan may not just reveal eye problems but also other illnesses even before their symptoms. Looking deep into someone’s eyes may reveal not just existing illnesses but those that may show up years later.
High-definition retinal eye scans have long been used to pinpoint other illnesses. High-definition retinal eye scans have been used to diagnose neurodegenerative diseases.
Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, and many others can be seen through a high-definition retinal eye scan. Even symptoms of high blood pressure and diabetes can be seen through retinal eye scan.
According to a published article by CBS News, through the help of Artificial Intelligence, a hope for a retinal eye scan being a pre-screening tool for Parkinson’s Disease is discovered. The researchers from the University of College London were the ones who discovered this hope using a retinal eye scan.
7 Years Before Diagnosis
In a published article by Euro News, a recent study revealed that eye scans can detect Parkinson’s Disease way earlier. Seven years before a formal diagnosis for the said disease could be detected through eye scans was stated in the study.
