What Your Eyes Say About You
People don't often realize how much your eyes can tell about you. For example, certain health conditions or diseases, like diabetes or overactive thyroid can be determined from your eyes. Your eye color can also give insight into genetic traits. For example, blue or light eyes can increase your risk of melanoma or dark eyes can make you more sensitive to the effects of alcohol and can increase your chance of developing cataracts.
Of course, not every condition or characteristic applies to every person, but there are some historical trends and symptoms. We think it's an interesting reminder of why annual eye exams are so important. So, we hope to see you in our office soon!CLICK HERE TO CONTACT THE GORDY EYECARE TEAMimage credit: Ben Mortimer on flickr
