They say your eyes are the window to your soul, but they also provide a view of your overall health. Vision problems can alert physicians to an undiagnosed or quickly progressing medical condition, such as diabetes, hypertension, or thyroid disease. And the best way to treat both issues – the cause and the symptoms – is to take a whole-body approach to care.
Dr. E. Shanika Esparaz of Envision Ophthalmology & Wellness in Cleveland is always on the lookout for new and better ways to help her eyecare patients become healthier and stronger overall. Double board-certified in ophthalmology and lifestyle medicine, Dr. Esparaz aspires to understand your current lifestyle, educate you on how your choices affect your health and vision, and work with you to develop healthy habits that can prevent or slow vision loss.
