How often do I need my eyes examined?

Eye disease can occur at any age. Many eye diseases do not cause symptoms until after damage has occurred. If you have a chronic eye problem such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic concerns, etc. you may need to see an ophthalmologist frequently. People with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or difficulty with reading vision (presbyopia) are seen annually or at the doctor’s discretion.
