An important goal at Ft. Lauderdale Eye Associates is to improve vision by facilitating general preventative care especially as it relates to eye health. One of the major cardiovascular risk factors we face is elevated blood pressure. Taking a single, isolated blood pressure reading may not tell the whole story.
We at our Fort Lauderdale office employ a novel way of measuring blood pressure known as the 10 minute blood pressure test, originally developed for use at the Mayo Clinic. In this test, an accurate digital blood pressure is measured six times during a ten minute interval. In doing so, we are able to get a better handle on this important parameter and understand how it may be effecting the cardiovascular system and ocular health.
