manhattan eye examRegardless of how old you are or your physical health, it’s important to have regular eye exams.

During a comprehensive eye examination with Dr. Alan Schlussel, your eye doctor will determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, and will also examine your eyes for commonplace eye disorders. Dr. Schlussel will also evaluate how your eyes work together and assess your eyes as an indicator of how healthy you are.

Eyecare specialists suggest that you have a complete eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, any risk factors you may have, and your physical health.

Children. Some eyecare experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision issues. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), every child should have an eye exam at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again before school begins. Children who have no vision issues or risk factors for eye problems should have an eye exam at least every two years throughout school.

It’s important that children with current vision issues, or any risk factors, should have their eyes checked more frequently. Common risk factors for eye problems include:

The AOA suggests that children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes checked at least once per year, or according to their doctor’s instructions.

If you don’t generally have vision problems, you should have an eye exam every two to three years up to the age of 40, depending on how quickly your vision is changing, and your overall health. Doctors often suggest that adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders have more frequent examinations as many diseases can have a negative impact on vision and eye health.

If you are over 40, it’s important to have an eye exam every one to two years to check for commonplace age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration.

The risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, so everyone over the age of 60 should be examined yearly.
