Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is the commonest degenerative disease of the nervous system to affect elderly people. It is characterised by 'dementia', a global cognitive decline involving loss of short term memory, judgement and emotional control. In addition, patients may suffer a range of visual problems including impairment of visual acuity, colour vision, eye movement problems and complex visual disturbances.
