Eye Examinations for Eye Health
Our optometrists recommend scheduling eye examinations at least once every two years if you have no preexisting eye conditions and no family history of eye diseases. If you wear glasses or contacts, play sports or sit in front of a computer screen all day, you should schedule an eye examination every 12 months. If you have a preexisting eye disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma or AMD, you should visit our eye doctor every six months.
Regular eye examinations can help catch many eye diseases early when they are most easily treated and managed. Without regular eye exams, individuals can lose as much as 40 percent of their vision before they notice a change.
- Diabetic Eye Disease
- Dry Eye
- Macular Degeneration
Risk Factors for Eye Diseases

Benefits of Regular Eye Care
The only way to diagnose certain eye diseases in a timely manner is by scheduling regular eye care examinations. Many eye diseases do not have any symptoms until significant vision is lost. Glaucoma is known as the silent eye disease because the internal pressure of the eye builds up slowly, causing damage to the optic nerve.
Diabetes can cause sudden changes in vision and even blindness because high levels of sugar in the blood can cause the small blood vessels in the eye to break and bleed. High blood pressure can also damage the small veins in the eye, leading to severe vision loss and blindness. Even something as seemingly simple as dry eye can have damaging effects on your vision, causing pain, irritation, blurry vision and light sensitivity. If dry eye is left untreated, it can cause scarring of the cornea.
If you have cataracts, scheduling regular eye examinations allows us to monitor the severity and recommend treatment in a timely manner before all vision is lost.
