How Often Should I Get an Eye Exam?
Babies (aged 2 and younger)
Ensure that your child has his or her eyes screened during regular pediatric appointments. Some childhood eye conditions to look out for include squinting (crossed eyes), lazy eye (amblyopia), and high hyperopia.
Children and teenagers (aged 3 to 16)
A child’s vision can be tested after the age of 3. Ensure that your child has an eye examination every year.
Young adults (aged 17 to 39)
Ask for a comprehensive eye examination if you have a family history of eye disease or if you have sustained an eye injury. If you are a patient with pathologic myopia, make sure you get an eye exam including pupil dilation once a year.
Adults and seniors
As you get older, you are more likely to develop age-related ocular disorders. You should look out for common ocular symptoms like changes in vision or eye pain, flashes or floaters, distorted lines, and dry eyes with itch and burn. To monitor vision changes, you should get a baseline eye screening when you are 40 or older.
Anyone with risk factors
If you have risk factors for ocular diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, a family history of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, or are taking prescription medications such as steroids that might affect the eyes, you should see your ophthalmologist more frequently.
