Knowing When to Visit

These initial steps taken at an early age, help ensure a child's vision is developing normally heading into their school years and imprints the importance of eye health and eye exams at a young age. After that, yearly eye exams are recommended.
The risk of eye diseases increases after the age of 40, making regular eye exams even more important for older patients. Early detection is key in preventing and detecting eye health problems.
