Welcome to our survey entitled "Vision and Parkinson's Disease"
We would like ALL individuals with PD to participate, including individuals with and without changes in vision.
Eye movements and visual processing changes occur for individuals with PD, sometimes in subtle ways and sometimes in debilitating ways. Changes in vision may take the form of blurred vision, double vision, vision fatigue, depth perception and visual scanning difficulties, changes in color vision, hallucinations, eyelid drooping or involuntary closing, among other symptoms. There is very little research to date looking at how changes in vision impact the well-being of individuals with PD. The objective of the present study is to deepen our understanding about changes in vision and its impact on day-to-day activities and quality of life from the patient’s perspective.
The information you provide will benefit individuals with PD and carers as well as treatment providers so that they can better help you. We encourage your participation, but want to emphasize that your participation is completely voluntary and that all information that you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
The data collection for this report will conclude on December 1, 2017.
