Getting your eyes examined on a regular basis isn’t something that you should think twice about. While most people assume that an eye exam is something that they can live without – especially if they can see OK and don’t believe to be suffering any obvious vision problems – an eye exam assesses far more than vision acuity. Here’s what you need to know about getting an eye exam in Monee, its importance, and more–
Everyone should get their eyes examined on a regular basis, although some people may need more frequent eye exams than others. For example, the American Optometric Association recommends that most children get their eyes checked at six months of age, at three years old, before first grade, and every two years following that. However, for at-risk children (children who are at risk for developing eye problems, including those whose mothers had certain infections during pregnancy, were born prematurely, or have other health conditions), eye exams may need to be performed annually.
The same is true for adults; most adults aged 18 through 60 only need to get their eyes checked once every two years. However, when certain risk factors are present, including a family history of eye diseases, certain health complications, or already less-than-perfect vision, patients should have their eyes checked more regularly.
