How often should I get an eye exam?

We recommend that eye examinations should be performed yearly. The American Optometric Association states that infants should get an eye examination soon after 6 months and then around 3 years of age. Once kids go to school, eye examinations should be performed yearly.   Many people wonder why we recommend starting eye examinations at such a young age; and they question whether or not you should get an eye examination even if you feel that your vision is ok. Consider these facts:

  • Children are now exposed to digital screens and blue light at a much earlier age. This results in eye strain which will continue to increase when kids go back to school.
  • Most learning happens visually. If a child has eye strain, it can prevent them from being able to learn to their fullest potential and can also affect behavior if the child cannot focus.

Please keep in mind that the visual acuity performed at schools and at pediatric offices does not a replace a comprehensive eye exam. One test identifies blurred vision, the other checks the complete health of the eye in addition to determining the exact prescription needed to see your best!

For adults, getting an eye examination is just as important. The statistics from the CDC enlighten us to some of the eye conditions and eye diseases that occur in the United States:

  • There are about 61 million adults in the US classified as being at risk for vision loss. Only half have visited an eye doctor in the past 12 months.
  • Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the US.
  • Nearly 3 million people have glaucoma, but half do not even realize it because more often than not there are no warning symptoms.
