Many eye diseases, like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, cause gradual and cumulative vision loss. The problem is that these conditions often don’t produce any noticeable symptoms. By the time you become aware of the changes to your sight, your eyes have already sustained permanent damage and irreversible vision loss.
Regular eye exams are the key to preventing vision loss due to disease. In addition to testing your vision, we will evaluate your eyes’ external and internal structures, looking for any early indications of potentially sight-threatening diseases. With an early diagnosis, we can administer the right treatment, and help preserve your vision.
Your visual needs will change as you age, which means you will need to see your optometrist more frequently. Generally speaking, these are our recommendations for adults at low-risk of disease.
This is only a general guideline. Your optometrist will tell you exactly how often you should schedule an eye exam.
In general, we recommend adults aged 18 to 59 have their eyes examined once a year. This allows us to monitor any structural changes to your eyes, and make sure that your prescription is up-to-date.
In general, we recommend adults aged 60 and older have their eyes examined every year. Seniors are at a higher risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and other serious eye conditions. Annual eye exams allow us to search for any signs of disease, and begin any treatments right away, if necessary.
