Keeping an Eye on Your Eyes

Don't Go It Alone

One of the most important aspects of eye health is seeing your eye doctor regularly. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, 80 percent of preschoolers don’t receive vision screenings — despite the recommendations for vision testing to begin when a child is 3 years old. A comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way for an eye doctor to be sure that your child’s eyes are healthy. This is also how doctors detect glaucoma and diabetic eye disease in adults. If you or your child is having eye trouble, talk to your doctor.
