    Are statins safe?

    Statins, also known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, are highly effective cholesterol-lowering medications. Statins have been studied extensively and overall have been proven to decrease the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other coronary artery diseases that are related to high cholesterol levels Statins have been around for 20 years, and their safety record is convincing. It’s true that nobody knows about the very long-term side effects, which could take decades to show up. But from what we know now, the rare adverse effects are far outweighed by the lifesaving benefits. And, if anything, the studies pointing to potential additional benefits (prolonging life) seem stronger than those suggesting additional adverse effects.

    Should I get my eyes examined if I don’t need eyeglasses?

    Yes. An eye exam is much more than just checking your vision. A comprehensive eye health evaluation is also performed during an eye exam. A person may have no complaints and 20/20 vision and still suffer from conditions such as retinal breaks or tears, glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy from diabetes or high blood pressure, melanoma of the eye, etc.
