Eye Exam & Whole Health

Maintaining health eyes plays an integral role in your overall healthiness. Often times the condition of our eyes can alert doctors to our healthiness.  For example, where one red eye could simply be the result of an irritant, two red eyes could signify an allergy.  A twitching eye can be resulting from excessive caffeine intake or lack of sleep.  Medications can result in vision impairment. Regular eye exams can track your vision history and help doctors properly detect if a med is affecting your vision. Your eyes are like windows into your internal health, which is why doctors will regularly look at your eyes even during physical.
