Eye Doctor Vision Exam Recommendations
Most eye problems don’t have early warning signs. Because of this, an estimated one in 19 Americans suffers with poor vision or eye-related issue. At Kleiman|Evangelista Eye Center, we have a range of technologies and testing options that help us detect issues with your vision or within the eye itself. Routine eye exams are the best way to ensure early detection of ocular problems and help you to maintain good eye health.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology makes the following lifetime recommendations for eye exams:
Age 5 – Children should have their first eye exam by the time they are 5 years old. Earlier exams are recommended if the child has crossed eyes or a family history of amblyopia (lazy eye). Following this initial exam, children should have their vision screened every two years.
Age 20-39 – People in this age group need eye exams only if they experience a notable change in vision; if they wear corrective lenses; or if they have or are at risk for glaucoma or eye disease.
Age 40 – Once a person reaches age 40, eye exams should occur every 2 years. Any noticeable change in vision necessitates an immediate exam.
Age 65 – After age 65, annual eye exams are necessary to screen for cataracts, glaucoma or other age-related eye issues.
