Many serious eye diseases occur without any warning signs. For this reason, regular eye examinations are important for preventing disease and maintaining high quality vision throughout your life. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that everyone, even those individuals who don’t wear glasses or contact lenses, should have their eyes examined every two years. Adults over age 65, and those with a history of diabetes or other chronic health conditions, should receive an eye exam every year.
