Alterations in imaging studies of the retina, i.e., optical coherence tomography, fundus images, flowmetry and retinal oximetry are indicators of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, vascular dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, among others [1-4]. This imaging studies give an in vivo, non-invasive, and fast diagnostic alternative, which can potentially lead to treatment improvement and better preparation of the patients and their families to the severe stages of these diseases [5,6].
