Young healthy people without a personal or family history of eye problems should schedule routine eye exams every two or three years. As we age we become more at risk for many common eye and medical diseases; therefore, having an annual eye exam is very important. For people who already wear glasses and contacts a yearly exam is especially important. Most contact lens and eye glass prescriptions that are more than one year old are considered expired and will not be filled without an exam.
People with diabetes or a family history of eye disease should have their eyes examined at least once a year. Diabetes in particular can lead to very serious eye complications. Certain professions require eye exams - pilots and military personnel, among others.
Diagnosis of eye disorders is initially based on the symptoms that a person is experiencing, the appearance of the eyes, and the results of an examination. It is important to know that certain eye diseases do not have symptoms. That is why seeing your eye doctor regularly is crucial.
