Other Eye Disease

Many systemic diseases can manifest themselves in the eye with or without ocular symptoms.  The eye is truly a window to the inside of your body.  This is why it is a good idea to have a routine medical eye examination by an ophthalmologist (or Eye MD) at various times in our lives even if you think your eyes are fine.  General information regarding eye examinations at different ages can be found in the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s public education website here.
