Go To Your Regular Exams
Most eye doctors recommend that you have a comprehensive exam at least every one to two years, depending on your age, whether you need corrective lenses, and several risk factors. Why? Vision can change a lot over the course of a year. This only gets more important past the age of 50. Comprehensive vision exams are a necessity for both children and adults.
Routine eye exams can help your kids get a jump start in school and prevent them from falling behind. Nearly 80% of what humans learn is absorbed visually. Therefore, it can be very detrimental to begin your learning experience without even knowing you have a vision impairment. Through the infantSEE program, our Glendale eye doctors can provide a one-time free eye exam for children under a year old. We recommend getting an eye exam once every two years for a healthy child. Certain risks including family medical history, strabismus, or infections during pregnancy may call for more frequent exams.
For adults, proper eye care becomes more and more important the older you get. Most people between the ages of 18 and 60 should get an eye exam once every two years unless you have one of the following risk factors:
- High Blood Pressure
- Family history of eye disease
- Prescription drug side effects
- Previous eye related injury
Many eye diseases have almost no symptoms, such as glaucoma; these can be identified by one of our Glendale AZ eye doctors, so you can start preventative care right away.
