Health conditions such as uncontrolled blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol levels can impact your eye health and in some cases lead to severe vision loss. Routine eye examinations can help in detecting signs of these conditions since the small vessels inside your eyes undergo more physical stress compared to the rest of your body. Good nutrition helps to regulate some of these levels.
Dr. Lee, O.D. recommends annual eye examinations to monitor for these and other eye health changes. She is a strong advocate of the notion that prevention is the best prognosis.
