Charities highlight sight loss and dementia link

Sight loss could be going undetected in people with dementia, two national charities have warned.

Joining forces to tackle the problem, Alzheimer Scotland and the RNIB Scotland have launched a booklet called Dementia and Sight Loss. The leaflet, which explains how to detect the first signs that something may be wrong with a person's vision, marks Dementia Awareness week.

Conditions linked to dementia and vision include Alzheimer's disease, lewy body, posterior, cortical atrophy and vascular dementia.
