An ophthalmologist can help you keep an eye on your health. In fact, this physician who specializes in medical and surgical eye care may be the first to detect your risk for heart attack, stroke or other life-threatening conditions. Fortunately, you can find help getting your eyes examined. The American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Eye-Care America program matches volunteer ophthalmologists with eligible patients.
