Chair of Neurosurgery Keith L. Black, MD, lost his mother to Alzheimer’s Disease. His personal tragedy has motivated a groundbreaking invention, based on the research of Maya Koronyo, PhD and Yosef Koronyo, MsC, LLB, that will result in the first ever eye test for Alzheimer’s.
This non-invasive, inexpensive, 10-15 minute eye exam detects the hallmark of Alzheimer’s – Amyloid plaques – in the retina up to 20 years before the disease becomes symptomatic. This incredible screening test, manufactured by NeuroVision, will enable the prevention of Alzheimer’s via lifestyle modification and will also track the efficacy of experimental treatments!!
