Identify Tumors and Protect Your Health with Eye Exams
Eye exams play a crucial role in eye health, but they're also important to your overall well-being. Many dangerous conditions, including brain tumors, can be identified during an eye exam. That's why you should make an appointment with a neuro-optometrist at the Eye Wellness Center in Bellaire, TX.
How a Tumor Can Be Detected During an Eye Exam
Your eyes provide a window into your overall health and well-being. If you're suffering from a serious medical condition, you may show symptoms that can be detected during an eye exam. For example, both brain and pituitary tumors cause symptoms like double vision, changes in pupil size, and changes to the visual field.
In some cases, a swelling tumor may also cause optic nerve damage. If our eye doctors see this damage during an exam, we can refer you for further examination. If you're able to catch a tumor early on, you'll be able to get treatment that could potentially save your life.
What We Can Do to Help
During your eye exam, we'll check your eyes carefully and look for indicators of more serious health problems. If you show signs of a tumor during your exam, we can refer you to a neuro-ophthalmologist that can examine you more closely.
Time is of the essence when it comes to tumors. We provide comprehensive eye care, including specialized testing and treatment. Seeing an eye doctor regularly can positively impact your overall health, especially if you visit the Eye Wellness Center.
Regular Eye Exams Can Keep You in Good Health
Many adults have annual physicals but don't bother to schedule eye exams. By having your eyes checked, you can get a complete picture of your overall health. Some of the serious medical conditions that can be detected during an eye exam include:
- Thyroid disease
The more information you have about your health, the better. Don't hesitate to make an appointment with our eye doctors, especially if you've noticed blurry vision, puffy eyes, droopy eyelids, or other unusual eye symptoms.
