When to See an Eye Doctor:
It’s true that you can find all the eye care services you need at your local For Eyes, but how do you know when to see an eye doctor? Here’s a quick guide for when adults and children need to schedule a visit at a local optical store.
We recommend that every adult has an annual eye exam to pinpoint vision issues and ensure you have an accurate prescription. Most adults spend a significant amount of time on the computer and in front of screens, and this can result in eye fatigue, eye strain, and other issues that are best solved with vision correction.
After age 40, when an adult is at a higher risk for presbyopia, an annual visit to the eye doctor is even more crucial. This is because you may need a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses that is strong enough to cover your changing vision needs. Our eye doctors can recommend progressive lenses or bifocals, depending on your prescription requirements.
You also know when to see an eye doctor if you’re exhibiting signs of digital eye strain, light sensitivity, or sudden eye coordination issues. A comprehensive eye exam can reveal if you have astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, and/or another refractive error that needs to be addressed. From there, the eye doctor can recommend the best prescription glasses or contact lenses for your needs.
A child should first see an eye doctor at or before 6 months old. They should have additional eye exams at age 3, age 6, and then once a year after that. Your child’s eyes are bound to change during the school year when they do more close-up work and are exposed to the computer, which is why it’s important to check on their eyes periodically after first grade.
Please Note: Many states require your child to have an eye exam and/or vision screening before starting school. Be sure to check the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health to see if you need to do anything else to get your child ready for the new year.
In some cases, your child may need an eye exam sooner than their next annual appointment. This may be if their prescription for glasses stops working the way it should or if they’re experiencing signs of vision loss, such as squinting, tilting their head, closing one eye to read, or rubbing their eyes. These symptoms may signify a refractive error, such as farsightedness or nearsightedness, and having the eye doctor conduct an eye exam is the best way to stay on top of it.
FAQ for an Eye Doctor Near You:
Do your eye doctors offer weekend appointments?
At many of our locations, you can schedule eye exams and enjoy walk-in service on Saturday and/or Sunday. The best way to know if there is an eye doctor near you open on Saturday or Sunday is to find your nearest For Eyes, and give them a call. We provide service in several parts of California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Virginia, and more.
What happens during a comprehensive eye exam?
During the eye exam, the eye doctor may ask you questions to learn more about your medical history and pre-existing eye conditions. They may conduct a series of tests to check for refractive errors, glaucoma, and cataracts. At the exam, they may also analyze your eye coordination and test for underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Do I need glasses if I have astigmatism?
Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, you may or may not need glasses. Vision correction might help if you are experiencing the following symptoms: blurry vision, frequent headaches while using the computer, squinting while reading, or issues seeing while driving at night. To help you manage these symptoms, the eye doctor may recommend prescription lenses.
