Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Is Blurred Vision an Early Symptom of Parkinson’s Disease?

In this video from the Veterans Health Administration, army veteran W.D. Perdieu shares that that he recently began experiencing problems with his vision, and his neurologist Dr. George Gitchel further explains the symptom’s connection to Parkinson’s disease.
A keen golfer, Perdieu first noticed something was wrong was when he was no longer able to see where he had hit the golf ball. Gitchel shares that in many Parkinson’s patients, when they fixate on an object, the eye continues to move instead of staying still and oscillates. This movement causes Parkinson’s disease patients to experience blurred vision.
Researchers think that this eye movement may begin to occur before some of the other symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, which could prove useful in detecting the disease earlier in patients.
