Scottish scientists have discovered an eye test that diagnoses Schizophrenia. The test has an almost 100 percent accurate method to detect whether a person has schizophrenia or not.
Because impaired eye movement has long been thought to be associated with schizophrenia, researchers began using “simple viewing tests”, at Aberdeen University. The researchers tested the ability of eye movement to sort schizophrenics from healthy people.
The new Scottish which study was led by Dr Philip Benson and Professor David St Clair reported that those with schizophrenia showed well-documented deficits in ability to track slow-moving objects smoothly with their eyes. Schizophrenics also found it more difficult to maintain a steady gaze.
The model of testing is 98 per cent accuracy in distinguishing individuals with schizophrenia, and healthy people.
Scottish researchers say they have an eye test that diagnoses Schizophrenia.
