Did you know that more than 30 medical conditions can be diagnosed through a vision care exam? Exams let eye care professionals take a non-invasive look at the body’s blood vessels, which means they may be able to catch serious systemic diseases early. Our eyes are more than ‘windows to the soul’—they are windows to our overall health!
In other words, quality eye care has a marked positive impact on overall health outcomes. In support of Healthy Vision Month, Versant Health is sharing some helpful resources to empower you to take charge of your eye health and protect your vision.
If your vision diminished, what would your world look like? Our Vision Simulator lets viewers see through the eyes of someone affected by glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, presbyopia, glare, or macular degeneration. Experience the impact these common conditions have on sight, and consider: How would your daily activities be impacted by reduced vision? What moments would you lose? Whose faces would you miss?
