When should an adult’s eyes be examined? The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends complete eye exams for adults at least once in their 20’s and twice in their 30’s. Early signs of eye aging and disease may be noted by 40 years of age, so baseline eye disease screening is recommended at 40 years old. The frequency of follow up visits to this baseline screen will be determined based on clinical findings. After age 65, adults should get a comprehensive exam every one to two years to evaluate for Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, or Diabetic Retinopathy. More frequent monitoring may be necessary based on the results of your exam.
