When should you get an eye exam?
Since we’re all different, it is important to follow the advice of your eye doctor. Typically, a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years will ensure that your eyes stay healthy and your vision remains sharp. If you have a medical condition like diabetes, hypertension or M.S., previous eye trauma or surgery, or a family history of glaucoma or macular degeneration, your vision should be checked more frequently.
Natural changes in the eyes, associated with aging, make more frequent eye exams necessary as we age. Especially if you haven’t had one in a few years. If you are between the ages of 20 and 40, an eye exam is an important part of maintaining your vision and overall health. Eye exams can often reveal developing health issues that aren’t easily found, even by a physical with your family doctor. Children may require eye exams every year or sooner, as their vision changes rapidly with growth. A typical eye exam takes less than an hour.
