Cambridge, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2018 -- All Eye Care Doctors, the leading eye doctor in Cambridge and Medford, MA and located near Porter Square and Davis Square in Somerville, provides regular eye exams that can lead to the detection of more severe illnesses before they progress.
Frequently, patients assume that their eye doctors are only examining their eyes. However, the specialists at All Eye Care Doctors know that the health of one's eyes can say a lot about a patient's general wellbeing, and they can detect numerous conditions through comprehensive routine eye exams, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and various nerve conditions.
In general, high cholesterol causes buildups of fat in the body's arteries, obstructing blood flow and frequently leading to heart disease. There are external signs, too; high cholesterol can cause fat deposits to form around the eyes in the form of white rings. While such rings are common in older individuals, they often signify high cholesterol in middle-aged adults.
If a patient has diabetes, the blood vessels in one's eyes can begin to leak blood due to high blood sugar levels. Referred to as diabetic retinopathy, early signs of the condition include blurriness, floaters, and problems with perceiving colors. Though it can be alleviated with diabetic treatment, diabetic retinopathy can cause severe vision problems and even blindness if left unaddressed.
Various neurological disorders carry symptoms that can manifest in the eyes, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, Bell's Palsy, and even toxic side effects from medications. Symptoms will depend on the condition involved, including eye twitching, chronic dry eyes, and blurred vision.
