Did You Know That Your Eyes Shows The First Sign of Every Disease


By far the most important organs of sense are our eyes. We perceive up to 80 per cent of all impressions by means of our sight . And if other senses such as taste or smell stop working, it's the eyes that best protect us from danger.

They say the "eyes are the windows to the soul". But did you know they can also tell you a lot about your health

Everything from allergies to autoimmune diseases can present with ocular symptoms first which take place inside the eye and can go unnoticed.

This is why it’s important for adults to have an eye exam every two years. ‘There are so many conditions we can find that don’t have symptoms, so coming in every couple of years allows us to look for trends or changes,

1. A Persisting Stye

Stye’s can be painful and irritating, but they usually disappear in a few days. If you have a stye that hasn’t cleared up after about three months, it could be a sign of a rare cancer known as sebaceous gland carcinoma. The same may be true for a stye that keeps occurring in the same location.

3. Blurry Vision

If you’re a frequent computer user, you may experience burning eyes or blurry vision. If your vision becomes blurry while you’re staring at a computer screen, it’s the result of computer vision syndrome. Your eyes become strained due to the lack of contrast on the computer screen, combined with the extra work of focusing on pixels.

4. A Blind Spot

A small blind spot in your vision might have a deeper meaning. If you’re experiencing a blind spot with shimmering lights or a wavy line, it may be because of a migraine aura. Blind spots may be accompanied by a headache.


5. Bulging Eyes

Your eyes can definitely play tricks on you. But if you feel a bulging sensation in your eyes, it could be related to your thyroid. The most common cause of protruding eyes is an overactive thyroid gland, known as hyperthyroidism.

6. Whites Of The Eyes Turn Yellow

This condition is known as jaundice. It frequently appears in newborns with immature liver function, but it can also appear in adults. If jaundice appears in an adult, it’s a sign of liver, gallbladder or bile duct problems.
