Eye Examination

An eye test could add years to your sight

The process of an eye test is very simple and thorough. We recommend you have your eyes checked by a specialist at least every 2 years, or more frequently if recommended by your optician. The eye examination not only provides an accurate assessment of your ability to see, but also gauges the general health of your eyes. The vision exam can result in early identification of other eye problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

Regular screenings also aid in early detection of eye health issues, as well as other chronic systemic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

While everyone should have regular eye exams, the frequency depends on two factors: patient age and risk. The American Optometric Association recommends the following eye exam guidelines for no-risk pediatric and adult patients:
