Adult Eye Exams
Top Quality Treatment
Generally speaking, you should get your eyes checked every one to two years—the frequency depends on your circumstances. There are several factors that influence how often you should get an eye exam, such as your age, whether you wear glasses or contacts, or if your medical history puts you at higher risk for eye disease.
According to the American Optometric Association, adults and older teenagers (those who are no longer in school) should have an eye exam at least every 2 years.
Adults over 65 and anyone with a higher risk of ocular problems should come in for an eye exam every year to keep their vision in good shape and their eyes healthy.
Even if you have 20/20 vision, regular eye exams are important for your eye health. Eye exams can detect diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and much more. Catching conditions like these early will allow for treatment that can help preserve your vision and prevent other eye problems.
