Your eyes are a unique window into your health. Eyes aren’t just for seeing. They are also the indicator of health problems that may not yet be declared. Careful observation of certain visible signs on, in or around your eyes can signal poor health or disease. There are indeed several interesting correlations between your overall health and your eyes. Looking carefully at your eyes in the mirror can protect your health.
The 8 signs of poor health visible through your eyes
1 Disappearing eyebrows
When the outer third of your eyebrows begin to disappear, it’s a common sign of thyroid disease.
2 A stye that does not heal
If it is not resorbed after three months, or if it returns regularly to the same place, it could be a rare cancer, sebaceous carcinoma.
3 Burning eyes or blurred vision when using a computer
This is called “computer vision syndrome”. Eyestrain is partly due to the lack of contrast on the computer screen, and the extra work of the eyes to focus on the pixels.
4 A black dot in your field of vision, accompanied by light reflections or a wavy line
These visual disturbances are caused by migraines with aura. They may or may not be accompanied by a headache.
5 The white of the yellow eye
We are talking about jaundice here. It occurs in newborns with immature liver function, or in adults who have liver, gallbladder, or bile duct problems.
6 Bulging Eyes
The most common cause of eyes that seem to pop out of their sockets is hyperthyroidism, which is an overactive thyroid gland.
7 Sudden double vision, obscured or loss of vision
These are warning signs of a stroke.
8 Vision disorder in a diabetic
People with diabetes are at an increased risk of suffering from various eye problems, but the most common is diabetic retinopathy. It is a complication of diabetes that affects the blood vessels of the eye. It is a leading cause of blindness in adults.
