Eye examinations are for more than eyeglasses and contact lenses.  The first signs of  health problems are often detected during routine eye examinations.   A 2008 study by Vision Service Plan (VSP) and Human Capitol Mangement Services (HCMS) looked at claims data on 90,000 VSP members.  The purpose of the study was to determine how often an eye examination was the first to detect early signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

First Diagnosis By Eye Exam

  • Diabetes 20%
  • High Blood Pressure 30%
  • High Cholesterol 65%

Need an eye exam?  Schedule with an optometrist at Gray Family Vision today.
