Annual comprehensive eye exams are recommended between the ages of 18 to 64. After the age of 65, depending on your specific needs, we may recommend you visit more often to ensure your eye health. You might need to visit more often if you have:
- History of eye disease
- Health conditions like diabetes
- Eye surgery or previous eye injury
- High or progressive lens prescription
To live life to the fullest you need your eyes to work their best. The eyes allow you to be active, appreciate art and communicate with family and friends. Unfortunately eye diseases are common and when left unchecked can cause vision loss and be involved with general health issues such as migraines, diabetes, arthritis, and more.The complexity of the eye involves hormonal systems, vascular systems, neurological systems, cellular systems, muscular systems, immune systems and more. As you age, the eyes become more vulnerable to age related diseases. Diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and age related macular degeneration are easier to control when detected early during annual eye exams.Detecting these diseases early can prevent vision loss and blindness.Looking at both the eye and health history, Optimeyes Vision Care can tailor your eye examination specifically to you.
