What to expect during your eye exam

Our comprehensive eye exams go beyond simply checking your vision. During your eye exam in Santa Fe, your optometric physician will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

A comprehensive eye health exam includes several tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside your eyes.

How often should you get an eye exam?

Eyecare experts recommend that you get a comprehensive eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors, and physical condition. If you wear glasses or contacts, the American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends seeing an eye doctor at least once a year. If you don’t usually need vision correction, you still need an eye health exam every two to three years up to the age of 40, depending on your rate of visual change and overall health. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure, and other disorders because many diseases can impact vision and eye health.

If you are over 40, it’s a good idea to have your eyes examined yearly to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Because the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over 60 should be examined annually.
