6 Signs Your Eyes Reveals about Your Health

Can you tell when something is abnormal in your body by looking into your eyes in the mirror? Do you observe that Doctors look into your eyes when you go for checkups? The roles the eyes play in your life can’t be overstressed. One of such roles is alerting you about your health status. So if any changes occur in your body, you will know immediately. And this may not just be any change.

These eye problems may be alerting you to some crucial health conditions that you must not ignore. Below are the things your eyes reveal about your health and make sure to pay attention to these signs.
Distorted Vision
Distorted vision is a sign that you either need to have your eyes checked by an optician, or you require a break from your devices (such as a computer, phones, etc.) especially if you have been staring at it for many hours. A break will help you regain focus and clear your eyes.
Jaundice
Jaundice is very common in newborn babies. It causes the yellowing of the skin and whitening of the eyes. It can also happen to adults. If jaundice doesn’t disappear within a reasonable period, it may be a concrete sign of liver issues. When jaundice is in the body, it is very easy to tell in the eyes.
Frequent Stye
A stye is a small, painful lump on the inside or outside of the eyelid. But, you don’t need to worry too much as it only takes a few days to clear up. However, if it stays for months and doesn’t clear up, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. It could be a sign of cancer referred to as Sebaceous gland carcinoma.
Swollen Eyes         
A swollen or bulging eye is often times a sigh of hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is when your thyroid gland produces too much thyroxine hormone. This can increase your body’s metabolism resulting in sweating, weight loss, increased irregular heartbeat, and nervousness or irritability.
Twists in the eyes
Your eyes are supposed to be clear. No twists, no curves, and no bends. But, if there are any twists or bends in the eyes, it may be a sign of high blood pressure. This is why you should see a doctor or ophthalmologist from time to time for full body checkup, as they can detect if the twists is a sign of High BP or not.
Sudden Changes in Vision
If you suddenly experience changes in vision, this may be a vision problem associated with stroke. You should see a doctor immediately.
Make sure to take good care of your eyes properly, rest when you should, and get enough sleep. Health is wealth, stay healthy.
