Regular eye exams are crucial for checking and maintaining your healthy vision. It’s important to get your eyes examined regularly, though the frequency of your eye exams will vary based on your age and eye health.
Regular eye exams help ensure you retain functional, healthy vision for a lifetime.
Vision exams are intended to determine whether you currently have the best corrected vision you can achieve. Depending on the purpose of the exam, we may test:
- Visual acuity with and without correction
- Measurement of glasses and contact lens prescription
- Automated, manifest, and cycloplegic refraction
- Binocular vision
- Color vision testing
These tests are intended to evaluate the quality of your vision overall.
Eye Health Exam
When evaluating your eye health, we will use specialized tests to look for many different eye conditions. These can include:
- Dry eyes
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Eye infections
- Retinal holes or detachments
How Often Should You Have Regular Eye Exams?
Everyone should have regular eye exams. However, the exact frequency with which you should have eye exams depends on your age and risk conditions.
