Taking Care of Your Long-Term Eye Health
Eye exams are essential to maintaining long-term eye health. They allow your doctor to monitor your vision and uncover any problems that may develop over time. Getting a baseline understanding of your eye health and checking in regularly is the best way to ensure long-term eye health.
Whether updating your lens prescription or getting treatment for eye disease, our team at Henry Family Vision Care is proud to offer quality eye care—which starts with completing your comprehensive eye exam. Book yours today.
How Eye Exams Work
Before your eye exam, your doctor will complete a pre-test with you to understand your eye health, including detailed family history and understanding of your visual habits. During your exam, you will complete a series of tests, including:
- Visual field analysis
- Retinal imaging
- OCT scanning
- Visual acuity testing
After your exam, your doctor will go over the results with you and develop a comprehensive treatment plan, which could include a new lens prescription, dry eye therapy, eye disease management, or more.
How Often Do You Need an Eye Exam?
Knowing when to come in for an eye exam is essential as you plan for your long-term health needs. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends eye exam frequency guidelines by age:
- Age 20–39: every 2–3 years
- Age 40–64: every 2 years
- Age 65+: every year
