You know you need to see your eye doctor in New York on a regular basis
to protect your vision health, but how often is enough? The answer is
more complex than you might imagine. How often you need an appointment
depends on a number of different factors, including age and overall health.
As a general rule of thumb, adults between the ages of 18 and 60 should
see an eye doctor every two years, while those over 61 should see the
eye doctor annually. However, there are a number of reasons why you may
need more frequent appointments. If you wear glasses or contacts, you
should see your eye doctor annually, and you may also need to see an eye
doctor at least once per year if you have a condition that puts you at
risk for vision health issues, like diabetes. If you have been diagnosed
with an eye problem, such as dry eye syndrome or macular degeneration,
you may also require more frequent check-ups.
