Health Tip: Get Regular Eye Exams
Even if you don't wear glasses
(HealthDay News) - People who may not require contact lenses or glasses still need regular eye exams to diagnose and prevent eye problems.
Fairview Health Services says you should have an eye exam:
- At least once between ages 20 and 29 if you do not wear glasses or contacts.
- At least twice between ages 30 and 39 if you do not wear glasses or contacts.
- Every two to four years between ages 40 and 64.
- Every one to two years after age 65.
- More regularly if you have certain conditions, such as diabetes; risk factors for glaucoma such as family history or being of African-American descent; or symptoms such as blurred vision or eyestrain.
