Description Parkinson's disease(PD) is characterized by accumulation of alfa-synuclein and degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the brain and presumably in the retina. Preclinical studies demonstrated neuroprotective effects of the dopamine agonist pramipexole, butclinical evidence remains unclear. OCT is an important biomarker in PD, but few studies have evaluated segmented retinal layers and choroid. We compared structural changes in retinal layers and choroid in PD patients and healthy controls. We also compared PD patients receiving(PD+P) with patients not receiving (PD-P) pramipexole treatment.
