Eye don’t think I’m Obese, but can extra pounds put my vision at risk?


Over the last couple of decades, obesity in the United States has increased at an exponential rate. Obesity can lead to a number of health issues including hypertension, diabetes and heart disease. These conditions also put you at risk for sight threatening problems and potential vision loss. For example, a patient who has uncontrolled hypertension is at greater risk for glaucoma and other eye diseases. This is one of the reasons why it is important to have a yearly eye health examination. Dr. Warren Johnson and the doctors at The Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee are medically credentialed to treat glaucoma, macular disease and hypertensive retinopathy, some of the most commonly diagnosed eye diseases. The doctors of The Eyewear Gallery evaluate each patient’s eye health extensively, examining family history, cross referencing medications and pre-existing patient conditions, as well as analyzing high definition digital imaging to diagnose and treat sight threatening conditions as early as possible to give patients the best chance of overcoming the condition.

Research points to the increase in electronic devices and other lifestyle changes that have taken our world by storm. More people than ever are staying home to watch live streaming concerts and sitcoms on DVR instead of the traditional trip to the amphitheater or movie theatre. These modern conveniences have made it easier for American’s to exercise less and leisure more often. Other behavior changes and the increase in fast food consumption contribute to obesity which can lead to systemic diseases and sight threatening conditions.

Dr. Warren Johnson and Associates at The Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee do not want you to outlive your vision! To schedule your yearly eye health exam, call 901-763-2020 or visit http://www.TheEyewearGallery.com
