Relationship Between Dementia Severity and Visual Function
Time and Location
Poster Session VII - Board: VII-107

We assessed visual functioning and dementia severity in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients, patients at risk for AD, and matched controls. Results revealed an association between dementia severity and visual processing of low contrast, low luminance stimuli. Low contrast, low luminance acuity may be used as an indicator of incipient AD.
