How often do I need an Eye Exam?

The need and frequency of eye exams vary with age, race, medical history, occupation and other factors. Regularity should be determined between you and your eye doctor. The American Optometry Association recommends the following schedule for routine eye care.

Age Exam Frequency

Infant/Toddler 0-24 months By 6 months of age
Preschool 2-5 years At 3 years of age
School age 6-18 years Before first grade and every two years thereafter
Adults 19-40 years Every two to three years
Adults 41-60 years Every two years
Adults 61+ years Annually

People with certain risk factors may need to see an eye doctor more than others. Risk factors include:

  • Family history of eye problems
  • African-American over the age of 40
  • Diabetes
  • Previous eye injury
