When to go to the ophthalmologist:
It's true that you can find all the eye care services you need at your local For Eyes, but how do you know when to see an eye doctor? Here's a quick guide for when adults and children need to schedule a visit to a local optician.
We recommend that all adults have an annual eye exam to identify vision problems and ensure you have an accurate prescription. Most adults spend a lot of time in front of computers and screens, which can cause eyestrain, eyestrain, and other issues that vision correction can best address.
After age 40, when an adult is at higher risk for presbyopia, an annual visit to the ophthalmologist is even more important. This is because you may need a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses that are strong enough to meet your ever-changing vision needs. Our ophthalmologists can recommend varifocal or bifocal lenses, depending on your vision needs.
You'll also know when to see an eye doctor if you're showing signs of digital eye strain, sensitivity to light, or sudden eye-coordination problems. A comprehensive eye exam can show if you have astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, and/or other refractive error that needs treatment. From there, your eye doctor can recommend the best pair of glasses or contact lenses for your needs.
A child should first visit an eye doctor at or before 6 months of age. You should have additional eye exams at age 3, age 6, and once a year thereafter. Your child's eyes will change throughout the school year as they take more close-ups and computer exposure, so it's important to check their eyes regularly after first grade.
Note: Many states require your child to have an eye exam and/or vision test before starting school. Be sure to check out theNational Center for Children's Vision and Eye Healthto see if there is anything else you need to do to get your child ready for the new year.
In some cases, your child may need an eye exam before their next annual visit. This may be the case when the prescription of their glasses no longer works as it should or when they notice signs of vision loss such as: B. Squinting, tilting the head, closing one eye to read, or rubbing their eyes. These symptoms could indicate a refractive error, such as farsightedness or nearsightedness, and having an eye exam by your ophthalmologist is the best way to follow up.
Do your ophthalmologists offer appointments on weekends?
At many of our locations, you can schedule eye exams for Saturdays and/or Sundays and enjoy on-call service.

What happens during a comprehensive eye exam?
During the eye exam, the ophthalmologist may ask you questions to learn more about your medical history and any existing eye conditions. They can perform a variety of tests to detect refractive errors, glaucoma, and cataracts. During the exam, they may also look at your eye coordination and check for underlying conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Do I need glasses if I have astigmatism?
Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, you may need glasses. Vision correction may help if you have the following symptoms: blurred vision, frequent headaches when using a computer, squinting when reading, or trouble seeing when driving at night. To help you manage these symptoms, your optometrist may recommend prescription lenses.
