“A wellness revolution is occurring in health care with eye doctors poised to be at the forefront of early intervention,” said Dr. Poteet. “As the only human tissue allowing a direct, noninvasive visualization of the microvascular circulation and central nervous system, retinal evaluation and imaging allow eye doctors to identify disease risks early and recommend evidence-based interventions that can mitigate the course of disease and promote wellness. The eyes, therefore, are truly the windows to health.”
