Maintaining Good Eye Health How to preserve vision and care for eyes Did you know that many eye health and vision problems present no obvious signs or symptoms, which makes it difficult for patients to know they exist? There’s one easy way to solve this issue: schedule a regular eye exam with your eye care professional (ECP). More than 80% of all visual impairment is treatable, preventable or curable, so early diagnosis and care are critical.1 Schedule Regular Eye Exams Below are recommended guidelines for eye examination intervals by patient age.7 Recommended Eye Examination Frequency by Patient Age7 Patient Age Before Age 3 Risk-Free Patients Children should have their eyes screened during their regular pediatric appointments. Vision testing by the primary care provider is recommended for all children starting around 3 years of age Every one to two years during regular pediatric or family physician check-up appointments At least once between the ages of 20 and 29 and at least twice between the ages of 30 and 39 Patients should receive a baseline eye disease screening at age 40. Based on the results of the initial screening, an ECP will prescribe the necessary intervals for follow-up exams Seniors age 65 and over should have complete eye exams every one to two years For individuals at any age with symptoms of or at risk for eye disease, such as those with a family history of eye disease, diabetes or high blood pressure, it is recommended that individuals see their ophthalmologist to determine how frequently their eyes should be examined.7

Global Vision and Eye Health Insights • Preliminary tests check for visual function and eye health such as color vision, eye muscle movements, depth perception, peripheral vision and the pupil’s response to light6 • Refraction measurement helps the ECP identify the appropriate lens needed to correct vision that is blurred due to refractive error, such as myopia(nearsightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness) or astigmatism(off-round curvature of the cornea)6 • Tonometry test measures the eye’s internal pressure6 • Visual acuity test checks for how clear each eye sees by measuring near and...
