Guide to Eye Exams and Vision Screening

Frequency and preparation of regular eye checkups

Many people do not value the importance of regular eye checkups when they have healthy eyes. However, once there is diagnosed an eye problem, it will be too late to appreciate the benefit of regular eye exams. Without eye exams on a regular basis, serious damage to the eyes may develop in an unnoticeable way. Just as the old saying goes, prevention is better than treatment. Actually, the American Academy of Ophthalmology has standardized the frequencies for individuals with different ages to receive checkups.
