The Hell(mouth) you say? Is this for reals? One eye exam can tell me if I have dementia?

Turns out that eye care is brain care as they describe:
“When detecting Alzheimer’s, professionals use an optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) test. This is a state-of-the-art, precise, and non-invasive imaging technique that shows even the tiniest blood vessels at the back of the eyes. Some of these blood vessels are thinner than a strand of hair, so precision is critical when studying them.”
In brief (as a recent NIH study observes): "Retinal vessel density was higher in individuals with preclinical AD."
What is Preclinical AD?
That's the AD that is in your brain before you know it - and, it's also the best time to start treatment!
To start with a Preclinical diagnosis, take a look at these scans and video [22:51] both about Preclinical Alz as well as from ongoing OCTA studies by Dr. Amani Fawzi and her lab partners at Northwestern University in Chicago.
