This brief blog builds on the poster you see, recently published by DoctorDirectory. Please read it carefully and share this information, something I hope you often do after reading a blogs.
We know that everyone should on a regular bases have their eyes examined by a professional, but exactly when? The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) suggests that you are examined at least by age 40, just like Diabetes and cancer, 40 years of age seems to be when our bodies commonly start to show ‘signs of wear’. According to the baseline eye exam, family history other medical problems the frequency of future exams will vary. Eye exams are simple comfortable and should last about 45 minutes. If you are over 65, every one to two years or as per your EYE MD. He/she will be looking for age related eye problems ex. cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
