They say your eyes are the windows to your soul… but did you also know that your eyes can also be a very accurate window to your health? For example, healthcare providers can use the eyes to diagnose cardiovascular diseases, hypertension disease, glaucoma, diabetes, and can even indicate cholesterol problems.
Hypertension disease is a major problem for many Americans, and is just another name for high blood pressure. Your eye doctor can sometimes diagnose this dangerous condition when doing a routine eye exam, which is why it’s so important to avoid missing regular check-ups—not just with your eye doctor but with primary healthcare providers, as well.
