We read with great interest the article by Lee et al. [1] entitled “Associations between recent and established ophthalmic conditions and risk of Alzheimer’s disease” published recently in Alzheimer’s & Dementia. We are grateful to the authors for sharing their valuable data with the scientific community, and we appreciate their efforts Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
