Eye Exams Q&A

Who needs eye exams?

Eye exams are important for everyone because they evaluate both vision and eye health. So, even if you have the sharpest sight, you still need regular eye exams to monitor eye health and check for early signs of eye disease. 

Children need their first eye exam at 6-12 months old and should continue regular eye exams into adulthood and throughout their life. 

What can I expect during eye exams?

Precision Eye Institute uses the latest and best technology to evaluate all aspects of eye health and vision in their state-of-the-art offices. Some of the main aspects of eye exams include: 


  • General eye health evaluation
  • Checking for problems like glaucoma, dry eyes, cataracts, and macular degeneration 
  • Visual field test
  • Color vision test
  • Vision sharpness (visual acuity) tests like reading an eye chart
  • Refraction tests to determine your glasses prescription


If you wear (or want to wear) contact lenses, you need additional tests to measure your eyes and determine the ideal lenses for your eyes (a contact lens exam). At the end of your exam, you receive your new prescription along with treatment recommendations for any eye issues.

How can I prepare for eye exams? 


Bring your current glasses or contacts with you because you’ll wear them for part of the vision testing. 

You’ll most likely have eye dilation — a few drops in each eye to widen your pupils so the team can view the back of your eye. You can drive after eye dilation but bring a pair of sunglasses along since your eyes will be light-sensitive for a few hours after the exam.

How often do I need eye exams?

Eye exam frequency depends on your age, vision, and eye health. For people with low risk of vision and eye health problems, the American Optometric Association recommends:

  • Age 3-5: One or more exams 
  • Age 6-17: Annual exams
  • Age 18-64: Exams at least every two years 
  • Age 65 and older: Annual exams

You likely need exams once or twice a year if you’re at risk for eye problems due to a history of eye disease, diabetes, wearing contact lenses, having a high refractive error, or other reasons.
