Eye Exams For the Whole Family in Frisco, TX

Routine eye exams are important, regardless of your age or physical health. During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes.

Eye care experts recommend you have a complete eye exam every year to assess your risk for potentially damaging eye conditions, as well as to keep on top of any changes in vision you may be experiencing.

Eye Care for Everyone

How Often Do You Need to See the Optometrist, Based on Age?

The American Optometric Association recommends the following schedule for eye exams based on age:

Age Next Exam if Low Risk or No Glasses or Contact Lenses Next Exam if At-Risk or Wearing Glasses or Contact Lenses
6-12 months Age 2-3 years As recommended by doctor
2-3 years old Age 5 As recommended by doctor
5 years old or before Kindergarten Every 2 years Every year
6-64 years old Every 2 years Every year
65+ years old Every year Every year

Anyone who has new ocular or visual symptoms, or new systemic health conditions, should contact our office to determine the appropriate timing of your next eye exam.

Since the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over the age of 65 should be examined annually.

If you are over 40, it’s a good idea to have your eyes examined every one to two years to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Eye Exams for Children in Frisco

Some experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • Premature birth
  • Developmental delays
  • Family history of eye disorders
  • Physical illness or disease
  • History of eye injury

Common warning signs of vision problems in children include:

  • Squinting
  • Sitting close to the TV
  • Holding material or screens close to their face
  • Headaches (especially on the forehead and around the eyes)

The AOA recommends that children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to their optometrist’s instructions. Read more about Pediatric Eye Exams.
