The Importance of Eye Exams for Adults & Seniors
Clear vision is important to our quality of life. In fact, research has shown that visual impairment has important links to a person’s physical, cognitive, psychological, and social behaviors.
What Conditions Will My Optometrist Be Looking For?
We do so much more than just assess your vision quality—we’re committed to helping you manage your eye health and vision for life!
Common eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, and presbyopia can begin to develop as you grow older. But during an eye exam, we can detect signs of these issues in their beginning stages before they can affect your vision.
Your eyes can also be an indicator of your overall health, even if these issues aren’t directly related to your eyes. These include diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, and even certain types of cancer.
What Should I Expect During My Eye Exam?
During the exam, your optometrist will perform a series of tests that measure the different qualities of your eye and assess its overall health.
Some of these tests include:
Visual Field Test
Measures how much you can see, including your peripheral (side) vision.
Checks how well you can see at different distances, commonly measured with the eye chart that many patients are familiar with.
Used to evaluate your eyeglass or contact lens prescription.
Dilated Eye Exam
By dilating (widening) the pupils, your doctor can see inside the eye to get a better view of your retina and optic nerve.
How Often Should I Get an Eye Exam?
For adults aged 18+ with no known risk factors, the American Optometric Association recommends a comprehensive eye exam at least every 2 years.
We recommend at-risk individuals and patients aged 50+ should have annual eye exams or an eye exam schedule based on your eye care needs. More frequent eye exams can help inform preventative care and detect any developing changes to eye health.
