Speaker information

Professor Francesca Cordeiro, UCL Ophthalmology

Instead of the eyes being the window of the soul, they have recently been shown to offer new insights into brain disease. After all, the retina is an extension of the brain. This could mean that a simple eye test could provide a new way of diagnosing major neurological disease. It may one day mean conditions such as Alzheimer's could be identified and treated early, before symptoms even develop, just by a routine visit to your high street optician. This lecture marks World Mental Health day on 10 October.

Please arrive early to secure a seat and avoid disappointment.
