How often should one have an eye examination?
We advise regular eye examinations for everyone including children even when you are not experiencing any difficulties. In accordance with national guidelines the recommended intervals are set out in the table below:
|Aged 15 years or below||every year|
|Aged 16 – 59 years||every 2 years|
|Aged 60 years and over||every year|
|Diabetic and Glaucoma patients||every year|
|Aged 40 years or over with an immediate relative with Glaucoma||every year|
The above are general guidelines but if it clinically required an eye examination may be advised more frequently, the optician will advise you of this.
