Alzheimer’s Signs Could Be in the Eye

I believe I can tell when someone shopping in a grocery store might have Alzheimer’s disease. There’s something about their eyes and facial expression that I notice… they tend to look at the floor and walk kind of haltingly or they look at you but aren’t registering your face as you might expect. Seems like they are not actively processing input. I think it might be due to the overstimulation at a grocery store: People, carts, colors, smells, overhead music. All this is a lot of input for a brain that is having trouble processing info as before. I think they “cope” by looking at the floor as they walk, to decrease the stimulation.

Reading this article today though, I wonder if what I am perceiving might actually be a change in vision/eye health… Read the article and see what you think.
