 Patients with age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma were at 40-50% greater risk of developing Alzheimers disease compared to those without these eye conditions, says a study reported August 8, 2018 in Alzheimers & Dementia, the journal of the Alzheimers Association. Screening for these eye diseases helps identify individuals at risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
