How Often Should You Visit Your Optometrist?
One of the first things that new patients discover about us here at Elite Vision Care is that we’re not your ordinary optometrist. Our goal is to make sure that every member of your family enjoys crystal clear vision. We aren’t satisfied with simply being there to help when you start experiencing problems with your sight, we want to provide solutions every step of the way.
Doing Your Part to Care for Your Eyes
It’s important that you understand when you need to have an eye exam in order to ensure that you stay seeing the best that you can at all times. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that adults between the ages of 18-60 have a comprehensive eye exam every year. However, if you have certain risk factors that could contribute to poor vision, you may need to have your eyes examined more frequently. These can include:
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- A family history of vision problems
- Frequent use of medications
- A job with visually demanding requirements (i.e., working at a computer)
The real benefit of staying on top of your own eye care is that spotting the signs of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration becomes much easier. Once problems like these begin to manifest themselves, we can help you to quickly address them and work with you to address them.
