In general, eye exams should be conducted annually, but other factors are part of how often you should visit an eye doctor in Cook County.
Parents should make sure children visit a Cook County eye doctor at least once a year. We recommend an initial exam at 3 years old and then before entering school. If children have health challenges or other complications, they could benefit from visiting a Cook County eye doctor more regularly.
Parents should consider taking their children for exams more often if they have these risk factors for vision challenges:

We also offer the eye pressure test with or without a puff of air.

We also offer emergency services when you lose or break contact lenses or eyeglasses to offer a continuum of care that you expect.
Emergencies are sudden and fluid situations. We can help you determine if you should go to the emergency room or if we can treat you.
