Measuring the eye's response to light can help early diagnosis of autism, according to the researchers the University of Missouri at Columbia. In the study, researchers used a Computerized Infrared Binocular that is normally used for eye doctor vision tests, to measure how the pupils react to light 100 milliseconds. They found that pupils in children diagnosed with autism are slower to respond to the appeal the comparison group.
Several potential mechanisms are also in the current thorough. If you study a larger population to prove this, pupillary response to light changes can be developed may be a biomarker that could have clinical implications in the risk of autism early inspection. The study shows, early intervention can improve child development outcome. The results of the study published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorder.
