Annual Eye Exams for Children, Adults, and Seniors
An annual eye exam performed by the optometrists at McBride Vision Clinic evaluates the health of your macula, retina, and optic nerve and looks for problems that may be developing. We recommend having your eyes examined every year starting at the age of 6 months.
Children’s eyes are still developing and require special care to safeguard their ability to learn at school. Poor vision affects reading and comprehension, reducing classroom performance.
At the very least, have your child’s eyes checked at these key times:
- First exam – At the age of 12 months
- Second exam – At the age of 3
- Third exam – Prior to starting kindergarten
As an adult, comprehensive checkups help you avoid irreversible vision loss from cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and other conditions. These age-related ocular diseases begin to form with few or no symptoms, so advanced screening can catch them early.
Senior eye exams look for conditions and diseases related to aging. If you’re over age 60, have your eyes checked annually. We are very patient with the seniors.
