25 Questions 

When should I have an eye exam?

Here is what we recommend:

Age Recommended Eye Exam Frequency

Infant                    Initial Infant See® Exam between 0-1 (Our doctors recommend thisfree exam to achieve the best vision for your child and for peace of mind for you as a parent)

3 and 5       Comprehensive Exam with Eye Doctor

6-18            Every 1-2 years

19 – 40       Every 2-3 years

41 – 60       Every 1-2 years

61+             Every year

In addition to the above minimum standard protocols, anyone who falls into one of these categories requires at least an annual eye exam to preserve and protect their best vision:

  • Contact-lens wearers
  • Diabetic patients
  • Any ocular condition or suspicious finding requiring follow-up (glaucoma or glaucoma suspect, nevus, cataract, macular degeneration, post Lasik patient, etc.)
