Vision exams By Dr. Cameo Harvey
The American Optometric Association recommends a yearly eye exam for adults, not only to detect and diagnose vision changes, but also to maintain eye health. For example, glaucoma, a disease caused by increased pressure in the eye, usually has no visual symptoms or pain until very advanced.The American Optometric Association also recommends that preschool children receive a complete vision exam at the ages of 6 months, 3 years and 5 years. It is of utmost importance that a child have a complete evaluation in the summer prior to entry into Kindergarten. While in school, yearly evaluations are recommended.
