Your eye exam schedule depends on your individual needs. In most cases, your OC Optometry Group doctor will recommend thorough eye exams at least once every two years if your eyes are healthy. If you suffer from eye disease or you've recently had eye trauma, your exam frequency may be higher.
The American Optometric Association recommends that your child's first eye exam should occur at around 6 months old. The next exam should happen at age 3, and again at around age 6 (prior to starting school.)
If your child enjoys good eye health, he or she will need to see the eye doctor just once every two years while in school. If your child needs vision correction or has any type of ongoing eye issues, he or she will need to see the eye doctor once a year.
Eye exams at the OC Optometry Group begin with a review of your medical history, including your eye health history. Your optometrist performs a range of tests that check your up-close vision, your distance vision, your eye movement, your focus, and other aspects of your eye health.
During the exam, your OC Optometry Group doctor will closely check your eye structure for abnormalities or early signs of ocular disease. In some comprehensive eye exams, you'll have your eye dilated so the eye doctor can get the best view of your inner eyes. The dilation may not be necessary if you're not having any eye issues.
If you're nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism, or need vision correction of any type, your OC Optometry Group doctor can issue a new prescription after your comprehensive eye exam. You can choose from a wide range of eyeglasses and contacts to get the options that best fit your lifestyle.
