Doctor explains how your eyes can hold clues to your overall health

A doctor has revealed how your eyes can explain a lot about your overall health.

Often referred to as “the windows of our soul”, Doctor Amir Khan has explained how your eyes can show so much more about our health and, in certain cases, indicate further issues.

In an Instagram video, Dr Khan explained more about common symptoms in our eyes.

The doctor said: “Protruding eyeballs and protracting eyelids are telltale signs of an overactive thyroid, most commonly caused by Graves disease.

“A yellow ring around the cornea may be a sign of high cholesterol, especially if you are younger than 40.”
