Eye Care & Wellness

Wellness Center

HealthIt is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, but more accurately, it’s the window to your health. During your examination, Dr. Higgins can learn much about your general health such as undiagnosed hypertension, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s, to name a few. It is impossible to separate your eye health from your overall wellness. A healthy body will have healthy eyes.

Wellness“If it’s good for your heart, it’s good for your eyes.” Most disease is created by the body’s response to the stress of inflammation and free radicals in the body. Good health requires a disease-free vascular system and minimal inflammation. If you can control the body’s inflammatory response to stress, you can greatly slow down the aging process. There are simple nutritional ways to help your body help itself. Dr. Higgins is happy to discuss the latest in nutritional information and develop your personal nutrition plan during your visit.
