How often should children get an eye exam?
We recommend that children should receive a comprehensive eye examination once they begin going to school and should be performed yearly going forward. If you are one of many people wondering why we recommend starting eye examinations at such a young age consider these facts:
- Children are now exposed to digital screens and blue light at a much earlier age. This results in eye strain, dry eyes, and other vision problems which will continue to increase when kids go to school.
- Most learning happens visually. If a child has eye strain, it can prevent them from being able to learn to their fullest potential and can also affect behavior if the child cannot focus.
- Many children do not know that they have an eye condition preventing them from seeing their best. They will compensate, sometimes for years, with many parents unaware of the problem.
- With childhood diabetes on the rise, one important fact to remember is that diabetes has a very negative impact on the eyes as well. There are other things that your optometrist checks for other than blurriness.
Keep in mind that the visual acuity test performed at schools and at pediatric offices, albeit an important indicator of potential vision issues, does not replace a comprehensive eye exam. The visual acuity test identifies if a child has blurred vision up close or far away. A comprehensive eye exam checks the complete health of the eye, depth perception, color blindness, eye pressure and more, in addition to determining the exact prescription that is needed to see as best as possible.
How often should adults get an eye exam?
For adults, getting an eye examination is just as important. The statistics from the CDC enlighten us to some of the eye conditions and eye diseases that occur in the United States. Getting a yearly comprehensive eye exam can give you a correct prescription and important health clues as well:
- There are about 61 million adults in the US classified as being at risk for vision loss. Only half have visited an eye doctor in the past 12 months.
- Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the US.
- Nearly 3 million people have glaucoma, but half do not even realize it because more often than not there are no warning symptoms.
