I originally posted this question in the medical communit
y support forum by mistake.
About a month ago, I went for a simple eye exam at a local optometrist for the first time since 2003. I am 28 years old and have never had any eye or vision issues; I am overweight but have never been diagnosed wit
h high blood pressure.
The optometrist dilated my eyes, which I had never had done before, and after the examination she asked if I ever had headaches, which I rarely do.
