Eye Exams: Saving Lives?

Your ophthalmologist can tell if you need glasses, but did you also know the eyes offer hints of important health problems? Changes in the retina can signal risks of diabetes, blood pressure and even foretell a stroke. Find a great eye doctor and schedule regular appointments so that any changes in your eyes are obvious to someone familiar with your history.

I used to look at eyes in the mirror. If I notice something different, I know I have to see a doctor.
