AIDS: neurological and ophthalmological aspects

Richard A. Armstrong

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Although overt ocular symptoms are not often encountered in AIDS patients, many exhibit subtile neuro-ophthalmic signs and symptoms. This article describes the neuropsychiatric symptoms as well as the neuro-ophthalmic conditions which have been reported recently in AIDS patients. The degree to which optometrists may be vulnerable to the AIDS virus from contact with patients in practice will also be discussed.
