Vision Exams for Children
The American Optometric Association recommends that pre-school children receive a complete vision exam at the ages of six months, three years and five years. It is particularly important that a child have a complete evaluation in the summer prior to entry into Kindergarten which was adopted into Missouri Legislature in 2007. While in school, yearly evaluations are recommended.
Vision Exams for Adults
The American Optometric Association recommends a yearly eye exam for adults -- not only to detect and diagnose vision changes or problems -- but, also to maintain eye health. For example, glaucoma, a disease caused by increased pressure in the eye, commonly goes unnoticed by adults until an advanced stage in the disease process. Regular vision examinations are also important for the prevention of vision problems created or aggravated by today's academic and professional demands.
21st century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can sometimes induce headaches and/or visual difficulties which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or minor vision therapy excercises.
