Chances are that in your lifetime, either you or someone you know will develop Glaucoma. Early detection and appropriate treatment are critical to preventing vision loss or blindness. Since glaucoma typically has no symptoms or early warning signs, regular checkups are important to preserving your sight!
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends an eye exam:
- at least once between the ages of 20 – 29
- twice between ages 30 – 39
- At 40, a baseline eye disease screening is recommended, and follow up will be determined based on your history, along with examination findings
- Seniors age 65 and older should have complete exams by their ophthalmologist every one to two years to check for cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other eye conditions.
