- High blood pressure
- Thyroid conditions
- Use of some medications such as Plaquenil or Methotrexate
- Dry Eye conditions
- Red eye or foreign body
Why it’s Important to Get Regular Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams often are the first way chronic systemic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes are detected. Regular eye exams are the best way to ensure eye health and maintaining your best vision possible. They also check for diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
