How Often Should I Get An Eye Exam?

Getting eye exams regularly is an excellent way to promote better eye health. The optometrist can monitor your vision and eye health and address potential concerns right away before any problems have a chance to progress. In Elmhurst, IL, comprehensive eye examinations are available at Skowron Eye Care, where our skilled optometrists can help you enjoy better eye health.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Regular eye exams are important for evaluating vision and eye health. They reveal when prescription glasses or contacts are needed. Eye exams also help indicate when an existing prescription must be adjusted.

There are several components to a comprehensive eye examination at our practice. Some key aspects of an eye exam include:

  • Medical history review to identify conditions that can affect vision, such as diabetes
  • Computerized auto refractor to ensure the accuracy of your glasses or contact prescription
  • Tonometry glaucoma test
  • Eye focus and tracking
  • Peripheral vision and depth perception
  • Retinal evaluation
  • Refraction
  • Color vision
  • Dilation, as needed

Adults in good health should have a comprehensive eye exam at least every ONE to TWO years. Older individuals and those with a prescription for glasses or contacts might benefit from scheduling an eye exam more often. Any one of our knowledgeable optometrists can determine how frequently you should schedule an eye examination.

Vision & Eye Conditions
