What Your Eyes Tell Us
When we place a priority on routine eye exams, it's because your eyes can tell us so much more than just how healthy your eyes are. Over 30 conditions have symptoms in the eyes and that makes routine exams critical.
A recent article details some of the conditions that are visible:
- Red spots - Caused by blood in the eye, can be a sign of diabetes.
- Bloodshot eyes - Can be symptomatic of fungal infections or pink eye.
- Itchy, swollen, red eyes - Can be signs of allergies.
- White rings around the eyes - Can be caused by high cholesterol.
Of course, some cancers, tumors and other invisible conditions can be diagnosed in routine eye exams. If you have more questions about your eyes and what they can tell us, contact our team. We're here to answer your questions!CLICK HERE TO CONTACT GORDY EYECARE
