Regardless of your age and status of your vision, it is recommended that you should see your eye doctor every two years and every year if you are above the age of 60 year. Eye exams are not solely for people with poor vision. Your doctor will perform a comprehensive eye examination because diseases like glaucoma are silent vision killers. Glaucoma has no noticeable symptoms, is the leading cause of vision loss, and can only be detected during this exam. Other issues or diseases discovered in a routine eye examination include high pressure, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
