May Is Healthy Vision Month

Vision is one of our most valuable senses. It is important to have your eyes examined by an eye care professional regularly. May is Healthy Vision Month. Don't wait until it's too late. Make an appointment to ensure your eyes are healthy. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends the following guidelines:
  • At age 40: have a baseline examination for eye diseases
  • 20 to 40: have an eye exam every 5 to 10 years
  • Over age 40: have an eye exam every 2 to 4 years
  • Over age 65: have an eye exam every 1 to 2 years
  • Diabetics should have an eye exam every year
