It is amazing what your eyes say about your health. With just a simple eye examination, your doctor is able to view your blood vessels in action. This can tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or even diabetes. (plus much more)
Some interesting topics mention in this video-
Xanthelasma – Xanthelasma is the appearance of a yellow, fatty plaque that builds up around the eyelids which is often a sign of high cholesterol.
Arcus Senilis or “corneal arcus” is where a whitish yellow or blue ring appears on the corneal limbus of the eye with age. This can be a sign of elevated high cholesterol when seen at a younger age.
High Blood pressure and diabetic retinopathy are often found causing significant eye disease and retinal damage. Both of which may lead to retinal edema and blurred vision.
If you are experiencing any blurred vision, be sure to contact your local eye care professional.
Managing your blood pressure, cholesterol and a good focus on heart healthy diets and exercise are important things to consider regarding your heart health.
