    The Retinal Vessel Density Can Reflect Cognitive Function in Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease: Evidence from Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Abstract: Background:There is increasing evidence that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients may present decreased cerebral blood perfusion before pathological brain changes. Using the retina as a window to the brain, we can study disorders of the central nervous system through the eyes. Objective:This study aim ed to investigate differences in retinal structure and vessel density (VD) between patients with mild AD and healthy controls (HCs). Furthermore, we explored the relationship between retinal VD and cognitive function. Methods:We enrolled 37 patients with AD and 29 age-matched HCs who underwent standard ophthalmic optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for evaluation ...
