An doctor's eye exam is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. It can even save your life. Brain tumors, cancer and diabetes are often diagnosed first in the eyes - early enough to initiate treatment which could save your life. Remember, the earlier we catch a disease the easier it is to beat it.
An eye exam includes tests of peripheral visionand eye muscle function that can be the first line of detection for a brain tumour
Examining blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye can help identify risks for stroke or heart attack—before they occur.
