Here are eight eye conditions, and what they mean in terms of your health.
A persistent stye
If you have a stye that hasn’t cleared up after about three months, it could be a sign of a rare cancer known as sebaceous gland carcinoma. The same may be true for a stye that keeps occurring in the same location.
When the outer part of your eyebrows starts to disappear, this is a typical sign of thyroid disease.
Irritated eyes, bleary vision while using a computer
A so called cvs (computer vision syndrome) causes these problems.
The shortage of contrasting colors on a computer screen and the additional effort invested in focusing on pixels all contribute to the weariness of the eyes.
A small blind spot in your vision, with glimmering lights or a distorted line
These are the typical symptoms produced by classic migraine.
They can be accompanied by a headache, but not necessarily.
Sclera turns yellowish
This phenomenon is known as jaundice, when the white part of the eyeball turns yellow.
Babies with undeveloped liver function, also adults suffering from liver, gallbladder, or bile ducts dysfunction can experience this phenomenon.
Hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid gland) usually causes the appearance of this peculiar symptom.
Abrupt double vision, blurred vision, or loss of vision
If you experience sudden double vision, dim vision or loss of vision, see a health care professional immediately.
These can all be warning signs of a stroke.
Blurred vision in a diabetic person
Diabetics are more likely to suffer from the eye problems than others, and the most typical condition they experience is called retinopathy. Retinopathy is a disease in which diabetes changes the circulatory system of the eye.
This condition is the main cause of the visual impairment among American adults.
