Eye Exams for the Whole Family in Clive

PremierVision slit lamp exam

The American Optometric Association recommends annual eye exams for patients who wear eyeglasses or contacts. A yearly eye exam is still crucial even if you don't typically require vision correction.

  • For patients with conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, eye doctors often advise more frequent examinations.
  • Everyone above 60 should undergo an annual examination.
  • If you're over 40, scheduling an eye exam every one to two years is advisable.

Eye exams help detect common age-related eye issues like:

  • Presbyopia
  • Cataracts
  • Macular degeneration

Eye Exams for Children in Clive

Children's vision is a priority. Approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children may have vision problems. The American Optometric Association recommends:

  • An eye exam at six months of age
  • Another at age three
  • A check-up at the start of school

Eye doctors recommend annual exams for children without vision issues or risk factors throughout their schooling. However, more frequent check-ups are necessary for children with vision problems or risk factors. Common risk factors include:

  • Premature birth
  • Developmental delays
  • Turned or crossed eyes
  • Family history of eye disease
  • History of eye injury

Children wearing glasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months, as advised by their optometrist.
