As a child, I only had my eyes examined once by an optometrist. This exam had to be done before I could get accepted into a gifted program at my school. Although, I was slightly nearsighted, I didn’t require glasses. As an adult, I’ve only had my eyes checked once. But, I now realize that this situation needs to change. In addition to prescribing corrective vision aids, I’ve learned that optometrists can diagnose several other health conditions as well. For example, certain heart conditions can be diagnosed by merely looking at a person’s eyes. On this blog, you will learn how the eyes are keys to your overall health. Enjoy!
