An eye exam is the way an optometrist or ophthalmologist tests your vision and eye health. Your eye doctor checks to see if you need glasses or contact lenses. The doctor also tests the health of your eyes to make sure that you do not have any other eye problems.
Even if you do not wear glasses you should have an eye exam regularly. The American Optometric Association recommends that you have an eye exam according to the following schedule:
Ages 18 to 40 — every 2 to 3 years
Ages 41 to 60 — every 2 years
Age 61 or older — every year
If you wear contact lenses, you must have an exam at least once a year to renew your prescription. If you are at risk for certain eye problems such as glaucoma or if you have diabetes, you should see an eye doctor once a year. School-aged kids should also be tested once a year.
You should also see your eye doctor if you have:
- blurry vision or eyestrain
- eye pain
- red eyes
- blind spots
- any other eye problem.
An eye exam will insure that you are seeing as clearly and comfortably as possible. Also, if your doctor finds signs of an eye disease, you can get treatment before the eye disease becomes a problem.
Call your eye doctor immediately if you have:
- loss of vision
- pain in or around your eyes
- flashing lights or objects floating in your vision
- red eyes with crusty eyelashes or yellow mucus in the corner of your eye.
