Accurately monitoring Parkinson’s using a simple photograph of the eyes.

Our current way of observing Parkinson’s progression is through clinical observations which can be slow and varied. By examining the nerve cells in the eye the research team hope to develop a new, quicker and more accurate measure.


70 people with Parkinson’s between 18-90 years of age who are happy to travel to the research centre.

The researchers are also looking for 30 people with either a diagnosis of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) or Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD).


Attend 3 visits over two years at the NHIR/Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility, Manchester.  The visits will take up to 2 hours in which you fill in forms, have a blood sample taken and have your eyes photographed.
