The Doctors breakdown how common eye issues might be a sign of other larger health issues and whether your eye infection is COVID-19 or pink eye.
Optometrist Dr. Bridget Anderson explains someone's eye can be a window to other possible health issues as they can spot warning signs linked to larger and more serious medical problems. In her practice, she encountered a patient who came to her for dry eyes and it was later discovered he had diabetes, another patient she examined showed signs of a brain aneurysm. She also says inflammation of the eyes may be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and lupus.
The optometrist also notes blurry vision or pain when moving your eyes should be checked out immediately, as some health issues can be identified more easily when the condition is active.
Dr. Anderson also explains COVID can also show up in the eyes, in addition to other parts of the body. She notes it can cause the eye to be irritated, red, watery, and light-sensitive -- which is very similar to the symptoms of pink eye. She explains she has also seen reports of the virus also affecting the nerves in the eye and even vision loss in 1 eye due to COVID affecting the eye's blood vessels.
The optometrist stresses if you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have been exposed to anyone with COVID, you need to get it checked out.
