Catalyst - Prophetic Eyes
Award-winning research could save thousands of lives by predicting strokes and heart attacks before they occur – and the signs are all in the eyes.
According to Professor Tien Wong, they didn't get it too far wrong with the old saying the eyes are the window to the soul. He believes that your retina could be the window to your health, a predictor of whether you're at risk of a future stroke, heart disease, or diabetes, to name just a few diseases.
With accuracy never before possible, research from the Retinal Vascular Imaging Centre at the University of Melbourne looks set to help us predict who is at risk of vascular related diseases earlier.
