Early Signs of Heart Disease Appear in the Eyes

How eye exams can detect heart disease Studies show that people with heart disease tend to have retinas marked by evidence of eye stroke. Eye strokes happen when the eye is deprived of blood flow and oxygen, causing cells to die. This creates a mark or a lesion.

The following OCT scan shows blockage of blood flow to the retina, formally known as retinal artery occlusion. OCT scans are a valuable [...]
