When Was Your Last Eye Exam?
Don’t pass up your best opportunity to protect your eyesight. A thorough comprehensive eye examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist is the most effective way to diagnose conditions that could steal your eyesight.
Those conditions include cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, which have few obvious signs or symptoms in their early stages. Detecting conditions like these early can result in successful treatment.
Refer to these recommendations from the American Optometric Association to schedule your eye exams:
- Children from 6 to 18: Before first grade and then every two years
- Adults from 18 to 40: Every two to three years
- Adults from 41 to 60: Every one to two years
- Adults 61 and older: Every year
- Adults who wear glasses or contacts: Every year
Patients with diabetes, hypertension, or a family history of ocular disease (e.g., glaucoma, macular degeneration), those who work in occupations that are hazardous to the eyes, those who take prescription or nonprescription drugs that affect the eyes, those who have had eye surgery, and those with other health concerns or conditions should have more frequent eye exams.
