The required frequency of eye exams depends on age and eye health. Young adults should get their eyes checked at least once in their 20s and twice in their 30s. You will require more frequent checkups if you have a family history of vision problems such as glaucoma or macular degeneration. Ask your eye doctor
about the recommended frequency of eye exams for your unique situation. If you're 65 or older, you should visit the eye doctor every one to two years. Children should have their vision checked at birth, six months, three years and before entering grade school to ensure the best opportunity for learning and mental and physical development.
Regular appointments can be easily made in advance. Because we realize that your time is extremely valuable, we make every effort to remain on schedule. If you need to reschedule, call us at least 24 hours in advance to allow other patients a chance to use that appointment slot.
