An estimated one in 19 Americans suffers with poor vision or eye-related issues. At KE Eye Centers of Texas, we recommend routine eye exams to ensure early detection of ocular problems and help you maintain good eye health.
Children need their first eye exam by the time they are 5 years old followed by screenings every 2 years.
People ages 20-39 need exams if they notice a change in vision, wear corrective lenses, or if they have a family history of diabetes or glaucoma.
Starting at age 40, patients should have eye exams every 2 years. If a noticeable change in vision occurs, seek immediate attention.
From age 65 on, patients should schedule annual eye exams to screen for cataracts, glaucoma and other eye-related issues.
