When To Have Your Eyes Examined
Routine eye exams are important regardless of your age or your physical health. The American Optometric Association recommends that you have a complete eye exam at least every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors and whether you currently wear corrective lenses.
Children should have their first eye exam at six months of age, another exam at age three and again at the start of school. Children that do not show risk factors for vision problems can continue to have their eyes examined every two years until age 18, while those that do may need more frequent checkups.
