Signs of Illness that are Evident from the Eyes!

Nithya Lakshmi | October 31, 2018

Did you know that your eyes play a major role in identifying your health issues? They are indeed a window to your body. Apparently, your eyes pick cues of illness from your body and show the same to you. If you understand the symptoms, you can quickly cure them before it turns out to be a serious concern. So here we have some most common health issues that can be spotted if you can pick cues from your eyes!


1) Loss of Vision, Dim Vision or Double Vision

This is a serious case of concern as this might be due to a stroke. A direct loss of eyesight without any kind of pain might be due to the blockage of blood flow to the optic nerve.


2) Blurry Eyes

With technology ruling the world, the screen that you often look into-be it a small mobile phone device or your computer screen, might often cause a blurry vision or irritation. This is mainly because of the increase in brightness or pixel resolution along with lack of proper contrast to your eyes. This type of problem is often called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).


3) Blind Spot in One Eye

With a drastic change in lifestyle, every person is under stress in all walks of life. As a result, he/she might end up with a migraine or a severe headache. The symptoms of this can easily be picked from your vision. A blind spot moving in your vision or a wavy line with a frequent headache apparently points out such a disease, which requires your quick attention.


4) A Lump on your Eyes

Any kind of stye in or around your eyes/eyelids for a particular time period is another serious symptom to consider. If the stye doesn’t go or is appearing again in the same spot, then this might be a form of cancer called sebaceous carcinoma. Consult your doctor immediately.


5) Eyebrows Fading Out

A fading or a thinning eyebrow is linked to both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This needn’t be the main symptom, as a fading eyebrow might also be due to inflammation, autoimmune disease or any other deficiency. Besides the loss of weight, and feeling fatigued, other thyroid symptoms can very well be seen with a thinning and dry eyebrow!


6) Bulging Eyes

Another symptom that throws light on hyperthyroidism is a bulging eye. This occurs due to an overactive thyroid gland.


7) White Area turning Yellow

If you find the white part of your eyes turning yellow, then it might be due to a dysfunctioning liver, gallbladder, bile duct or it might even be due to jaundice.  


How to take care of your eyes naturally?

  • Do not smoke and take care of your liver.
  • Keep a check on your cardio
  • Eat fresh green vegetables like kale, spinach, carrot and fruits like papaya, oranges and citrus fruits.
  • Stay away from computers as much as you can (though this is inevitable if you are working)
  • Wash your eyes with a bowl of water for a cooling effect.
  • Practice eye exercises whenever you find the time.


Now that you know your eyes speak a lot about your health conditions, it is necessary to take care of your eyes and also your health by quickly picking the hints given to you by your eyes!
