Alzheimer’s is a leading cause for disability and dependency in later life. We’re working towards changing this.
Alzheimer’s Affects Everyone
1 out of 9 people over the age of 65 suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. But really, it affects everyone. A progressive disease, initial symptoms of Alzheimer’s include memory loss. During late-stage Alzheimer’s, individuals lose the ability to care for themselves and can no longer respond to their environment. While frustrating for Alzheimer patients, friends and family members are forced to watch as their loved one transforms into a silhouette of their former, healthy selves.
A characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease is the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. Since the retina is an extension of the brain, this provides clinicians and researchers with critical access for identifying beta-amyloid plaques, known as a key biomarker of Alzheimer’s. In turn, leading to the early detection of this horrible disease.
Clinical Trials – Changing the Future of Alzheimer’s
We are transforming understanding of age-related memory loss by bringing cutting edge imagery and Artificial Intelligence at your local eye clinic.
With research we can make memory loss a souvenir
