What kind of diseases can be detected in an eye exam?

Eye Health No Comments

The eyes are the only part of the body where blood vessels can be examined without cutting any skin. Therefore, many diseases of the body can be detected such as diabetes, high blood pressure, tumors, multiple sclerosis, and also drug abuse.

An eye exam, however, does not replace a thorough physical examination by your family physician as some of these conditions can be detected earlier with alternate tests.
