An eye examination is a series of medical tests performed by an ophthalmologist or an optometrist assessing vision and ability to focus on and discern objects, as well as other tests and examinations pertaining to the eyes. According to Dr. Lauretta Justin, “By examining someone’s eyes, I can see things like arteries, veins, and nerves, which are a reflection of what’s going on in the rest of the body.” The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but they’re also the keepers of all kinds of secrets—secrets our eye doctors are in on but we typically aren’t. Those little tidbits of info our baby blues (or greens or browns) are hiding are actually chock-full of important details, not only about our eyes and vision, but about our overall health.
