Regular health check-ups are probably the least of your worries as an expat, especially when you are probably busy every day. However, something such as a simple routine eye examination may not seem important right now but here’s how you could be neglecting your health…

Eye Exams Can Detect Other Health Problems

Did you know that a good amount of people find out about other health issues they may have such as diabetes and high blood pressure through routine eye exams?

Many people neglect getting regular eye check-ups because they believe that they aren’t necessary. However, those who get examined have prevented themselves from irreversible damage.


Our Eyes Reflect Our Overall Health

Our eyes are one of the best reflections of our overall health. This can be seen through changes in the appearance of your eye’s vessels in which an eye doctor is able to examine.

Here are a few of the most common threats to your eyes which indicate that you should consider getting an eye examination:

1- Dry Eyes: It is important to understand the underlying reason why your eyes are dry. You shouldn’t “just live with it”.

2- Eye Strain: Blinking is essential to the health of your eyes as it helps to lubricate them. Starring at your phone and computer screens for a long period of time reduces the eyes lubrication due to lack of blinking.

3- Allergies: Some people suffer from allergies such as irritation, itching, and burning from their eyes. A good doctor can help you manage those symptoms in the best way possible.

4- Vision Correction: Vision problems such as farsightedness or nearsightedness need regular check-ups to make sure that everything is working normally.

Even if you believe that you have perfect vision, an eye exam is one of the most beneficial things that you can do for your overall health. However, we know that choosing an eye care provider is an important decision. After all, you are trusting a doctor to take care of one of the most important organs of your body.
