Comprehensive Eye Exam

If you are an adult, it is very important to schedule an eye exam at least once a year. It’s not just to see if your prescription has changed, or whether you need bifocals.  It is also for your health.

As a Gilbert eye doctor, we recommend all adults should have eye exams  on a regular basis to check for potential problems such as glaucoma, AMD, cataracts, and more.  While we firmly believe that everyone needs regular eye checkups, some people need them even more often.

Adults should see an eye doctor at least every couple of years and annually once they are older than 60.  A small amount of time in a chair and a few questions, and you reduce the risk of eye illness by a staggering 90%.  

For example, if you have risk factors such as diabetes, or a family history of eye problems an optometrist in Gilbert  is your first line of defense.  And it isn’t just adults that can benefit.  Children need their vision checked  as well.  For children, eye exams usually take place at six months, three years, and before they begin first grade.

What You Need Before Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

In all forms of medicine, knowledge is key to make an effective diagnosis.  You want to know your medical history, and be prepared to list any health issues such as smoking, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  You also want to make sure to discuss any medications that you’re taking, as well as any eye-related problems in your family history.  Before you meet with your optometrist, if you have any questions or concerns, write them down.

It isn’t just about picking out a perfect pair of designer frames, or getting an extra pair of prescription sunglasses. Visiting an eye doctor in Gilbert is actually more about your eye health.

So remember, it’s always best to be proactive.  So schedule an eye exam today.
