Routine Eye Exams Can Protect Your Vision
We get a clear view of your eye health and vision by taking a number of different tests and examining various parts of your eye. However, preserving your vision means having regular eye exams throughout your adult life. We usually recommend having an eye exam:
- Once every 2 years after you turn 18
- Annually after you turn 65
To help manage these risks, we may recommend more frequent eye exams to monitor your eye health.
Common Age-Related Eye Problems
Your eye health can change as you age, possibly increasing the risk of several different eye diseases and conditions. Even though some of these conditions could permanently affect your vision, we may be able to prevent sight loss by detecting them as early as possible.
We personalize your eye exam experience to meet your unique needs. Using a variety of tools and technologies, we can observe various structures of your eyes, including your retina, macula, optic nerve, and so much more.
These tools can give us an insight into your eye health and help detect any possible issues you may be developing. You may encounter several different issues as you age, but some of the most common include the following. Click on each title to learn more.
Cataracts are an eye condition that slowly clouds your eye’s clear, crystalline lens. As you age, proteins in your crystalline lens can break down and clump together, making the lens more rigid and causing it to develop a milky, hazy appearance. Eventually, cataracts could affect your vision quality.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
AMD affects a part of your retina known as the macula. The macula provides you with the sharp central vision you need to read, see fine details, drive, and recognize faces.

If you have other refractive errors, like myopia or hyperopia, it may be difficult to see at various distances. We may recommend multifocal contact lenses or eyeglasses to help correct these errors and provide you with clear sight.
