Link Between Eye Health & Memory
Ever forget something when you walk out of a room? Could it be due to your eye health, rather than cognitive decline?

Your eyes are very much the avenue to your memory. 

The retina is an extension of the brain, both conscious and conscious.

In fact, memory is 95 percent visual, and health conditions like MS, Alzheimers, and Parkinsons Disease can be detected through the eye. And, 40 percent of the brain is dedicated to visual function.

Host Dr. Robert Abel, Jr., explains this phenomenon and how closely the eye and brain are connected.
