An eye exam is not solely about vision; it can also provide valuable clues about a person's health.

Our eyes are not isolated organs but are interconnected with the rest of our body systems. During an eye exam, eye doctors can detect signs of various systemic health conditions, including:

  • Diabetes: Diabetes can cause damage to the blood vessels in the retina, leading to diabetic retinopathy. Early detection and management are essential to prevent vision loss.
  • High Blood Pressure: Changes in blood vessels at the back of the eye can indicate hypertension, prompting further evaluation and control of blood pressure.
  • High Cholesterol: Deposits in the eye's blood vessels, visible during an eye exam, may indicate high cholesterol levels, which can increase the risk of heart disease.
  • Autoimmune Diseases: Certain autoimmune diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can show up in the eyes with symptoms like dryness, redness, or inflammation. An eye exam can help in early detection, leading to earlier treatment and better management of these conditions through referrals for specialized care.
