Parkinson Disease ( PD ) and other Parkinson-like diseases (called Parkinsonisms) frequently cause increasing vision problems as the illness progresses.

Go to www.abledata.com/abledata_docs/NIRE_PD_Vision.htm for the complete research paper-very interesting

Good paper ..... It helps explain a lot of the questions asked right here not too long ago.
THey had mentioned PSP(para supranuclear palsy), the one problem my guy has is a symptom of PSP, the eyes don't go up and down or side to side as far as they should. No wonder his movement doc says he is under the umbrella of PD plus diseases. He has symptoms of some of each disease.

He is recently having issues with blurry vision. I joke with him and tell him it's because he nods off so much the eyes are still sleeping.

Thanx caregivermary.... great find....
