Importance of routine eye exams

Regardless of age, regular eye exams play an important role in overall health and wellness. For children, routine comprehensive screenings starting at 6 months of age can aid in on-pace learning and development. Adults, on the other hand, should have comprehensive eye exams to keep prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses current. Regular screenings also aid in early detection of eye health issues, as well as other chronic systemic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Eye exam frequency

While everyone should have regular eye exams, the frequency depends on two factors: patient age and risk. The American Optometric Association recommends the following eye exam guidelines for no-risk pediatric and adult patients:

AgeFrequency
Birth – 24 MonthsAt 6 months of age
2 – 5 YearsAt 3 years of age
6 – 18 YearsBefore first grade and then every two years
18 – 60 YearsEvery one to two years
61 Years and OlderAnnually

Those at risk for eye and vision problems – including people with diabetes, hypertension, a family history of ocular disease and other health concerns – should have eye exams more frequently, as recommended by their optometrist.

What to expect

When you visit Cohen’s for an eye exam, our on-site eye doctor will test your vision and your eye health, offering the finest in eye care. During your appointment, you’ll have the chance to consult with your optometrist about your prescription and ask any questions concerning your eye health. Then, one of our eyewear specialists will walk you through your options and help you pick a solution that accommodates your unique vision needs.
