How Often Should You See Your Eye Doctor?

For many years, everyone was given the same standard advice to see their eye doctor at least once a year. As time has progressed and doctors have been able to look at the long-term effects of annual eye exams, they have realized that some exceptions to this rule need to be made. We at Michigan Eyecare Institute serving Southfield, MI, Livonia, MI, and Dearborn, MI, know a lot about eye exams.

Eye Exams from an Optometrist

For healthy people with no complaints about their eyesight, it is possible to stretch the time between visits to eighteen months or longer. People who have diabetes or other chronic conditions that effect their eyesight should make it to the eye doctor more often to help monitor the condition. In addition, there are several different symptoms that should cause a patient to make an eye exam appointment immediately.

Blurry vision a common problem, but it is an important symptom that should not be ignored. While blurry vision is most common in children and is usually nothing more than the result of eye growth, it can be a symptom of several different eye diseases among adults.

Frequent headaches or eye pain should be a reason to see the eye doctor as soon as possible. While this is usually just a symptom of eye strain, it can also be an indicator of much more serious problems. An optometrist on our team can tell the difference and look for signs of serious conditions.

Finally, if you are seeing dark spots in your field of vision and you do not know why, come in and see us. While this can be a symptom of dry eye, it can also be an indicator of problems with the optic nerve.
