Regardless of your age or physical health, it’s important to have regular eye exams at Berryessa Optometry.
Comprehensive eye exams at our San Jose optometry practice are comprised of a variety of tests, from simple ones like reading from the eye chart, to more advanced evaluations like using high powered lenses to examine the inner tissues at the back of the eye. During a complete eye exam at Berryessa Optometry, our eye doctor will determine whether you need a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, will examine your eyes for common eye diseases, and will evaluate how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
Yearly eye exams are recommended by the American Optometric Association (AOA) for patients who wear eyeglasses or contacts, those over 40, diabetics, and adults with other risk factors for developing eye diseases. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health. Furthermore, people with a family history of blindness or hereditary eye diseases should also have more frequent eye exams. If someone has good vision and is not otherwise at risk for eye disease they may wait 2-3 years between routine eye exams.
Forty and up means people need routine eye exams every 1-2 years to monitor age-related eye changes such as presbyopia, cataracts and macular degeneration. By age 60, everyone needs an annual eye exam, because the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age
