Eye Exam Schedule

For patients with healthy eyes, the following comprehensive eye exam schedule is recommended:

  • First eye exam: age 6 months
  • Second eye exam: age 3 years
  • School age children: before starting school and then every 1-2 years (in addition to vision screenings at school)
  • Adults: every 1-2 years
  • Seniors: yearly

Eye Exams for Overall Health

Your eye doctor can also identify underlying health problems just by looking at your eye health. In some cases conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and other medical conditions can be identified during regular eye exams.
