Your Eyes Deserve Top-Quality Care
It’s easy to consider skipping your eye exam if you haven’t noticed a significant change in your vision, but the first step towards managing your overall eye health is having a routine eye exam.
Your optometrist performs several tests during an exam to evaluate your eyes’ overall health and to search for any signs of eye disease. A proactive approach is best for vision problems, and issues with your eyesight can be treated and managed if caught in the early stages.

How Often Should I Have an Eye Exam?
Everyone is born unique, and it’s no surprise that your vision is too! However, our optometrists will need time to get to know you and your eyes before determining the frequency of appointments.
Many possible factors can affect your eye exam schedules, like medical history, eye health, and prescriptions.
Getting the overall picture of eye health is our goal in the early stages. Once we have that, your schedule will be more in line with the recommendations of the American Optometric Association:
- If you are between 18 and 64, you should have an eye exam every second year unless you’re considered high-risk.
- If you are over 65, you should have an eye exam every year unless you’re considered high-risk.
Am I High Risk?
You may be considered high-risk if you:
- Have an eye disease or a family history of eye disease.
- Have a systemic condition with visual side effects, like diabetes.
- Work in a visually demanding or hazardous environment.
- Take prescription or nonprescription medications with visual side effects.
- Have functional vision in only one eye.
- Have had eye surgery.
- Have a progressive refractive error.
