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...
