These 8 Eye Conditions Can Tell A Lot About Your Health!
These 8 Eye Conditions can say a lot about our health! The human body is really something amazing. Our body has a way of sending us signal if something isn’t quite right. It gives us a heads up. Our eyes are of the ways our body lets us know that something is not OK. Believe it or not, our eyes act as a window into the health. Here are 8 eye conditions, and what they actually mean in terms of our health.
A Persisting Stye
Stye’s can be irritating and painful, but in a few days they usually disappear. If you still have a stye that hasn’t gone after 3 months, it could actually be a sign of sebaceous gland carcinoma- a rare cancer . We can say the same thing for a stye that keeps appearing in the same spot or location.
Blurry Vision – One of The Most Common Eye Conditions
If you frequently use computer, you may experience blurry vision or burning eyes. If your vision becomes blurry while you’re staring at the computer screen, it’s the result of computer vision syndrome. Due to the lack of contrast on the computer screen your eyes become strained. It is a combination with the extra work of focusing on pixels.
An Eye Blind Spot
A small eye blind spot in the vision might actually have a deeper meaning. If you have experienced a blind spot with wavy line or shimmering lights, it may be a result of a migraine aura. Headache may also accompany blind spots.
Our eyes can really play tricks on us. But if you feel in your eyes a bulging sensation, there might be actually a connection to the thyroid. The most common cause of protruding eyes is hyperthyroidism – an overactive thyroid gland.
Eye Whites Turn Yellow
We know this eye condition as jaundice. It appears in newborns with immature liver function. Adults can have it as well. If jaundice appears in an adult, it’s a sign of gallbladder, liver or bile duct problems.
Blurred Vision In A Diabetic
People with diabetes are at an increased risk for several eye problems. The most common is diabetic retinopathy. This condition affects the circulatory system of the eye. In American adults it’s the leading cause of blindness.
Dim Vision, Double Vision Or Vision Loss
If you experience sudden dim vision, double vision or loss of vision, immediately visit a health care professional. These can all be warning signs of a stroke.
