    Hi Dr Savitt

    thank you for your presentation on the vision changes in PD. I am a Nurse and care for people with PD often with visual disturbances, changes & issues. I appreciate the additional knowledge that I have gained & to share with my patients & carers to understand the pathophysiology behind their symptoms.

    Thank you so much for such a clear presentation Dr Savitt. It has helped me to understand the vision issues that I have experienced in the years before my PD diagnosis, and since that time. Would it be possible to get a copy of the presentation, as I would really like to share this information with the professionals who treat my eye issues?

    Thank you for your clear summary of vision issues in PD.

    A query on the treatment options for ‘double vision’ caused by convergence insufficiency. I have PD related convergence insufficiency and saw an orthoptist who taught me some simple eye convergence exercises to do for a few minutes each day. The orthoptist said she traditionally used prisms but more recently tried convergence exercises first. After 6 weeks of regular exercises my symptoms had resolved, confirmed by objective testing. I now do the exercises twice a week to maintain the improvement.

    I am interested in your thoughts on eye convergence exercises as a treatment.

    With thanks,
