There is no connection between them. Ask any dentist or eye specialist,  He will tell the same, Finish your treatment confidently n consult ophthalmologist for your eye.

Hi, It is just a Myth that Eyes and Teeth are connected and patients eye sight will diminish after dental treatments. Its absolutely wrong. There is no connection or a relation between an eye sight and dental treatments. You can go for any required dental treatments with out at hesitance. And do Consult an Opthalmologist if you are in doubt or having any eyesight related problems. Take Care. Regards...

That is definitely not true as whatever treatment being done for your teeth not only braces will not affect your eyes. As for the blueness in yoyr eyes please consult your ophthalmologist fir that.
