Regular Eye Exams Are an Integral Part of Keeping Your Eyesight Strong and Healthy
Most of us do not think about our eyes unless something looks or feels wrong. But think about how much you rely on your eyes for a moment. Your vision is one of your most valuable and important resources. Regular eye exams are an integral part of keeping your eyesight strong and healthy.
Thorough & Comprehensive Eye Exams
Each optometrist at our two locations follows an in-depth eye examination structure to help give us a complete understanding of your eye health. In addition to testing your visual acuity at distance and near, we will evaluate your retinal health and check for a variety of eye diseases.
Once your examination is complete, our team will discuss your results and answer any questions you might have. We want to make sure you understand any changes, diagnoses, or treatment recommendations before you leave our office.
When Do I Need an Eye Exam?
Many factors influence the frequency with which you should have an eye exam. Age, family history, certain medical conditions, and even your job could all have an impact on your eye health. While the American Optometric Association does offer general recommendations for scheduled eye exams, it’s very important that you listen to your doctor and follow their recommendations. They know the intricacies of your specific case, so they’re in the best position to determine how often you need an eye exam.
For low-risk patients between the ages of 18 and 64, the American Optometric Association recommends having an eye exam at least every two years.
Ages 65 & up
For low-risk patients aged 65 or older, the American Optometric Association recommends having an eye exam at least once a year.
