Regular eye exams are an important part of maintaining lifelong good vision and health. The American Optometric Association recommends an exam every two years for adults age 18 to 64. Since older adults are at increased risk of cataracts and other complications, patients 65 and older should consider an exam once a year. Diabetic and other patients at increased risk should also visit more often. It is a good idea to schedule an initial eye examination for children by age ___ as well. This is a good time to set a baseline for any future comparison. Of course, if you are or a family member are experiencing unusual eye or vision problems, call our office for the first available appointment.
