How often do I need an eye exam?
A full comprehensive eye exam on should be performed on children between the ages of 4 to 6 and then yearly till the age of 18 as kids eyes change as rapidly as they grow.
For the under 40 crowd who have no family history and have good vision, an eye exam every 2-3 years is recommended. At age 40, a baseline eye examination is definitely recommended. Why 40? Unfortunately, for all of us, this is the time when early signs of disease and changes in your vision may occur.
After the age of forty, an eye exam every 18 months is generally a good rule to follow. At around 60 years of age, annual eye examinations are recommended because of the increased risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and other eye diseases.
