Signs You Should Visit Your Optometrist
If you are a generally healthy person (age 18 to 60), you’ll need to visit the eye doctor once every two years. Once you reach 61, doctors recommend that you visit your Optometrist annually. Some adults have “at-risk” health factors, like a family history of eye disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure, which means they should have more frequent eye exams. If you do have some of these “at-risk” factors, be sure to consult with your Optometrist to determine a regular eye exam schedule.
If you are experiencing any of the following eye-related problems, you may need to visit your Optometrist ASAP.
- Frequent headaches
- Farsightedness (blurred vision)
- Nearsightedness (struggle to see things up close)
- Double vision
- Difficulty seeing at night
- Constantly squinting
- You see halos when you are around light
