No matter what of your age or physical health, it’s very important to have regular eye exams at Atkinson Eye Care. During a thorough eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

A detailed eye exam includes:

  • A number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes.
  • Finding the right prescription to help you see clearly.
  • Consultation about the right eyewear choice for you. This includes contact lenses, different types of eyeglasses, lens treatments and many other options.

Eyecare experts advise you have a total eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors, and physical condition. Contact us, today.

Some experts approximate that approximately 5 % to 10 % of pre-schoolers and 25 % of school-aged children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should have their eyes examined at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again at the beginning of school.Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should then proceed with to have their eyes examined at the very least, every two years throughout school. Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently.

Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • turned or crossed eyes
  • family history of eye disease
  • history of eye injury
  • other physical illness or disease

The AOA strongly recommends that Lake in the Hills children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at the very least every 12 months or according to their eye doctor's instructions. Read additional about Pediatric Eye Exams.

The AOA also recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every two to three years up to the age of 40, depending on your rate of visual change and overall health. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an effect on vision and eye health.

If you are over 40, it’s a good strategy to have your eyes examined every one to two years to assess for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Because the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over the age of 60 should be examined annually.
