Routine eye exams are an important part of maintaining your personal health and enjoying life at every age.
Our eyes continue to change throughout our lives, but these changes can occur slowly. Sometimes even serious eye
problems may not be noticed until they have an irreversible effect on the vision.
In order to prevent vision problems, you will need an eye exam from time to time even if your eyes seem healthy. If you wear glasses or contacts, you should have your eyes checked yearly. If you have certain medical conditions such as diabetes or a family history of eye disease you may need yearly or more frequent eye examinations.
Your eye examination will consist of a number of tests and an examination to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. The tests and examination may vary depending on the eye condition for which you are being evaluated. Each test is important as it allows your doctor to assess different aspects of your vision.
