10 Percent

90 percent of eye problems have blurry vision early in the process.  10 percent don’t.

Some of those 10 percent are due to systematic conditions that affect the whole body, and are visible in the eye.

Some of those systematic conditions visible in the eye can kill you: Lupus, Grave’s disease, sickle cell disease, MS, pseudotumor cerebri, brain tumors, and others.

Early detection is the key to survival.

Dr. Felker recommends a yearly eye exam. Call 573-472-2900 to schedule yours.
