The eyes are a window to the soul…and cardiovascular risk. Earlier research has shown a link between high blood pressure and changes in the eye, but a newer study has shown that small blood vessels at the back of the eye can predict cardiovascular risk from changes associated with artery stiffness and increased blood pressure. It is also important to visit your eye doctor to screen for things like glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, changes in your vision, and even some kinds of cancer.
