May Eye Observance

May is "Healthy Vision" Month

Preventive eye care is important for everyone. Certain eye conditions and diseases can strike at any time in life, destroying healthy vision. Everyone should take care of their healthy vision by wearing protective eyewear when playing sports, doing yard work, working with chemicals or taking part in other activities that could cause an eye injury.

Because cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other eye conditions affect seniors over age 65, a complete eye exam by their ophthalmologist every one to two years is highly recommended.

Below are suggested guidelines to schedule regular eye examinations for you and your family:

  • Ages 0 to 2: screening during regular pediatric appointment
  • Ages 3 to 5: screening every 1 to 2 years during regular primary care appointments
  • Ages 6 to 19: schedule examinations as needed
  • Ages 20 to 29: one examination
  • Ages 30 to 39: two examinations
  • Ages 40 to 65: examination every 2 to 4 years
  • Ages 65 and over: examination every 1 to 2 years

Getting a comprehensive dilated eye exam is one of the best things you can do to keep your eyes healthy. In this painless procedure, an eye care professional examines your eyes to look for common vision problems and eye diseases, many of which have no early warning signs. Protecting your eyes from accidents, and early detection and treatment of eye problems are the best ways to keep your healthy vision throughout life.
