How often should I have an eye exam?


It depends on your age. The doctors at Optical Solutions recommend:

  • Babies and children 3 and under: Eye check at routine pediatrician visits
  • Children ages 3 to 6: Eye exam every 1 to 2 years
  • Children 6 and up: As needed or every 5 to 10 years
  • In your 20s: At least 1 exam
  • In your 30s: At least 2 exams
  • Adults 40 to 54: Every 2 to 4 years
  • Adults 55 to 64: Every 1 to 3 years
  • Adults 65 and up: Every 1 to 2 years

If you have a family history of eye problems or a diagnosed eye disease, you need an exam at least once a year. If you have a medical condition that puts you at risk for eye problems, such as diabetes, you should also have a yearly exam.

When you see your eye doctor, ask how often you should have an exam. Regular eye examinations are the best way to protect your vision and your active life.

Our first piece of advice when we bought our Airstream was from friends and fellow campers. They said to make sure you "keep the shiny side up." Something that struck me kind of funny, but so true :)
