Follow that car, eh, dot!

What if an eye health exam could become as simple as following a moving and jumping dot on a screen for a few minutes? In a paper in the journal “Frontiers in Neurology”, Alessandro Grillini and co-authors show that the eye movements made by participants with either Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease when doing such a simple task, are sufficiently different from normal, in one or more aspects. This opens up the possibility of very rapid and quantitative screening for eye movement abnormalities in the future. Want to know more? You can find the paper here.
