Our eyes are not just the window to our soul, but also to our health and well-being. With that being said, our eyes can reveal something about our health conditions and here are some of them.
1. Persistent Sty
If you have a sty that hasn’t cleared up after about three months, it could be a sign of rare cancer that is known as Sebaceous Gland Carcinoma.
2. Eyebrow Hair Loss
If the outer part of your eyebrow starts to disappear, it may be a sign of Thyroid Disease.
3. Blurry Vision
If your vision becomes blurry while you’re staring at the computer screen, it’s the result of Computer Vision Syndrome. The strain of looking at the computer’s monitor is taking a toll in your eyes.
4. Blind Spot
A blind spot with shimmering lights or wavy line can be due to a migraine with aura.
5. Bulging Eyes
The most common cause of swollen eyes is an overactive thyroid gland, which is also known as Hyperthyroidism.
Our body has its own ways of letting us know that something is off. With this, it is advised to keep an eye on these symptoms before it’s too late.
