8 Things Your Eyes Are Trying To Tell You About Your Health
Our bodies have a knack for telling us when something is wrong - but that only works if we catch the signals. Fortunately, we're here to explain what your eyes may be trying to tell you.
Check out what these eight eye conditions might mean for your health:
1. Stye that persists
Styes that persist or return repeatedly to the same location may be a sign of sebaceous gland carcoma, a rare cancer. Seek immediate medical attention.
2. Eyebrow thinning or loss
Losses of eyebrow hair - especially to the outer edges of your eyebrow - may be a sign of thyroid disease.
3. Blurred vision
Blurry vision and burning eyes may be symptoms of computer vision syndrome - the result of extra attention spent focusing on pixels and strain as a result of lacking contrast. You may need to spend less time staring at screens.
4. Blind spots
Blind spots may result from migraine auras, especially if accompanied by shimmering lights or wavy lines. This normally includes a headache as well.
5. Eye bulge
If you feel a bulging sensation, your eyes may be reacting to hyperthyroidism, or an overactive thyroid gland.
6. Yellowed whites of your eyes
While most common in infants, this can result in adults as well, and is known as jaundice. Jaundice is a sign of gallbladder, bile duct, or liver problems.
7. Diabetic blurred vision
If diabetic and suffering from blurred vision, this may be diabetic retinopathy - and is a leading cause of blindness in American adults.
8. Other vision problems -vision loss, dim vision, or double vision
These are all potentially stroke warning signs - seek medical attention immediately.
