We recommend a complete eye exam every year for overall health.
The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommendations:
- Children should have their eyes examined at six months, three years old, and when they start school.
- If there are no vision problems, children and adults should have their eyes examined every two years up to the age of 40, then annually.
- For children or adults who wear eyeglasses or contacts, an annual eye exam is recommended.
Eye exams are recommended more frequently for those with certain health conditions, including, but not limited to, diabetes and?high blood pressure.
