Have You Had an Eye Exam Recently?

If you don’t remember your last comprehensive eye exam, you may be avoiding your best option for protecting your eyesight. A thorough examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist is the only way to ensure that your eyes stay healthy.

There are many conditions that threaten your eyesight, but they may have few symptoms in their early stages. Catching them early can result in successful treatment. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, regular eye exams are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.

The American Optometric Association recommends that children who have no symptoms of eye or vision problems should have eye examinations according to the following schedule:

  • Birth to 24 months: At 6 months of age
  • Age 2 to 5: At age 3
  • Age 6 to 18: Before first grade and then every 2 years

Adults between the ages of 18 and 60 should have routine eye exams every two years, and those 61 and older should have them every year. A comprehensive dilated eye exam should be done according to the following schedule from Prevent Blindness America:

  • Age 20-39: Every 3 to 5 years (If African-American, every 2 to 4 years)
  • Age 40-64: Every 2 to 4 years
  • Age 65 or older: Every 1 to 2 years

Adults with special risks, such as diabetes, a previous eye trauma, surgery or a family history of glaucoma, may need more frequent eye exams.
