Many eye diseases and problems have no early warning symptoms hence it is necessary for early detection of vision
problems such as nearsightedness, astigmatism, or glaucoma. Routine eye examinations are the best protection to maintain good vision.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends the following guidelines for scheduling eye exams over the course of a lifetime:
- Children should have their first eye exams by age 5. Earlier examinations are recommended if there are problems such as crossed eyes or a family history of a lazy eye (amblyopia.) After that, children with normal vision should be screened every two years.
- People between the ages of 20 and 39 only need eye examinations if a noticeable change in vision occurs or if they wear corrective lenses. People in this age group who wear corrective lenses should schedule an exam every year, as should those at risk for glaucoma or who know they have eye disease.
- Beginning at age 40, regular eye exams should be scheduled every two years. If a change in vision is noticed, an exam should be scheduled immediately.
- At age 65, yearly exams become necessary to rule out glaucoma, cataracts or other age-related eye diseases.
