Knowing how often you should go to the eye doctor and have your eyes checked is important! Typically, different types of medical organizations will have different rules. Also, depending on your age and your eye health, will determine how often too!
Basic Guidelines for Check Ups with an Eye Doctor
For people with good eyesight and health:
- Once in your 20s
- Twice in your 30s
- At 40, then regular follow-ups depending on your health
- 65 and older, every 1-2 years
If you have health issues, eye problems, or a family history including genetics, of issues such as diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc., you will want to have your eyes checked more often.
