Most people think eye exams are for vision assessment, eye glasses or contacts. But, when eye doctors are looking at your eye health, they have a view into your overall health. Dr. Annie Low, Crossover’s Optometry Program Manager explains how routine eye exams often discover early signs of serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and potentially cancer.
Add to that, if you’re a heavy screen user (who isn’t?), you may experience eye fatigue and strain. Fortunately, Annie shares her expert advice on how to beat the symptoms of headaches, eye strain (do blue light blocking glasses actually work?), and dry eyes (avoid redness relief drops!) to keep your eyes healthy throughout the day.
