- Glasses: every or every second year at your convenience. But as you get older, having annual checkups will be more important.
- Contact lenses: once a year, required by law since they are medical devices.
- Monitoring systemic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol: once a year.
These diseases can adversely affect your eye health and some conditions may warrant even more frequent checkups.
Regular checkups are critical in order to preserve your precious sight. The earlier we catch eye disease, the better we can address treatment options or change current regimens. In addition, eye checkups can detect other diseases at an early stage.
