Many eye and vision problems have no signs or symptoms, which means you may not even realize there’s a problem until your sight begins to diminish. For this reason alone, periodic comprehensive eye exams are key to maintaining good vision and healthy eyes.
Preventative care isn’t the only reason to have a yearly eye exam. Your eye doctors will determine which vision tests are best for you, but many adult eye exams include a variety of small tests that help monitor the health of your eyes while looking for potential eye diseases.
A yearly eye exam is recommended for all ages, even if you have generally good vision. Adult eye exams can help you stay current with your prescription and help your eye doctors detect any eye diseases or vision problems.
Children should also get eye exams as they often do not speak up if they have poor vision, simply because they do not recognize anything is wrong. A yearly eye exam will help your eye doctor determine if your child needs glasses or may be susceptible to any types of eye diseases. The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye assessment at 6 months.
