Importance of Eye Care

Importance of Eye CareThe eyes are the windows to the soul…or at least to the body.  Of the five senses, vision is most critical to long term health.  Blindness can lead to a decline in health, confidence, and socio economic status (job loss).  Unattended eye injuries can lead to infections which can lead to vision loss which cannot be reversed.

Maintaining the health of your eyes is extremely important.  Your family and future depends on the condition of your eyes.

Your eyes are truly remarkable in that many aspects of your overall health can be determined by your eyes’ health. They are the only place where the blood vessels can be viewed in their natural state without a surgical procedure. Optometrists can spot brain and retinal tumors just by taking a glance into your eyes.  An eye exam by an experienced doctor can spot diseases such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, liver disease, brain tumors, macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and various blood diseases.
