Abstract

Seeing Parkinson Disease in the Retina Invited Commentary Invited Commentary Jonathan B. Lin, MD, PhD; Rajendra S. Apte, MD, PhD Parkinson disease (PD) is a debilitating neurodegenerative dis- agents, and rate of disease progression. If there is indeed a ease caused by progressive death of dopaminergic neurons in difference based on PD subtype, these findings would have the substantia nigra. This neurodegeneration classically causes important implications for improving our ability to counsel a triad of bradykinesia, rigid- patients regarding prognosis.
