Detection & Prevention

Scheduling and attending regular eye exams can assist in detecting eye issues at their earliest stage. A routine trip to our office can provide our optometrists with the opportunity to provide you with tips on caring for your vision. 

A routine check-up and updating your eyeglasses and contact lenses prescriptions can keep your vision clear. Your vision is ever-changing, so an updated prescription is essential. As you age, your vision also ages and changes, resulting in vision issues that may require further treatment. Consistent eye exams can help your eye doctor detect these changes in your vision and advise you accordingly.

Understanding Adult & Senior Eye Exams

Putting off your eye exams can be easy, especially if you feel your eyes and vision seem healthy. Regardless of immediate vision concerns, it’s always a good idea to remain consistent with your eye exams. Some eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration can develop without you even noticing.

Adult Eye Exams

A comprehensive adult eye exam involves a series of tests and procedures to closely examine and evaluate the overall health of your eyes. Your eye doctor will determine prescriptions for contact lenses or glasses, and check for common eye diseases.

The recommended eye exam frequency for adults 18 to 60 is at least once every 2 years to maintain healthy vision. Adults who are at risk of more serious conditions will likely need more frequent eye exams.

Risk factors to consider include:

  • A family history of eye disease
  • Diabetes or high blood pressure
  • A visually demanding occupation
  • Previous eye injuries or eye surgery

The frequency of your eye exams can vary based on different contributing factors. Your eye doctor will walk you through the next steps and discuss follow-up appointments.

As you age, age-related vision issues can develop. If you’re over 60, it’s recommended that you get a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. Your vision can change substantially as you age, and going in for an eye exam can help your eye doctor detect any potentially serious issues.

Because the risk of eye disease increases as you age, regular eye exams are crucial to maintaining your health and wellness.
