Do I Need Regular Eye Exams?

Eye and vision exams are critical parts of healthcare. Regular exams are the best way to monitor your vision and eye health. During the exam, the optometrist can check your vision and see if you need corrective lenses or a change in your prescription. In addition, the eye doctor can look for early signs of eye disease.

How Often Should I Have My Eyes Examined?

While regular eye exams are important, the frequency of those exams can vary based on several factors, such as your age and the condition of your eyes. We typically recommend that people that wear eyeglasses or contact lenses schedule an annual eye exam. Even if you don’t have vision problems, you should have your eyes checked every few years.

The risk of eye disease increases as you age and many older adults also experience vision loss. For these reasons and others, we recommend that seniors schedule annual eye exams. If you’re not sure if you need an eye exam, don’t hesitate to call our office.

What Should I Do to Prepare for an Eye Exam?

Before your exam, you should make a note of any vision problems or symptoms that you’ve been experiencing, such as blurred vision, eye fatigue, or dry eye. Writing down this information ahead of time will make it easier to share your symptoms with the optometrist. In addition, you should bring the eyewear that you’re currently wearing and a list of medications that you’re taking.

What Should I Expect During My Eye Exam?

When we conduct a comprehensive eye and vision exam, we don’t just check your vision. We conduct a range of tests so that we can assess the overall health of your eyes and see if your vision prescription has changed. This may include eye teaming and movement tests as well as tests that look for signs of eye disease, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration.
