When should you get an eye exam?
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends:
At age 40, adults with no signs or risk factors for eye disease should get a comprehensive medical eye evaluation if they have not previously received one.
For ages 40-54, the recommended interval for evaluations is 2 to 4 years for asymptomatic individuals, individuals without risk factors and those who’ve had a comprehensive eye examination.
For ages 55 to 64, the recommendation is every 1 to 3 years.
For ages 65 or older, the recommendation is every 1 to 2 years, even in the absence of symptoms.
We integrate state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment with an electronic medical records system. The electronic system allows for accurate record keeping, on-line billing and minimized errors, improving the effectiveness and efficiency of patient care.
