An excellent question often asked of us is “Doctor, how often should I have my eyes tested”?
The answer to that question depends on each individual’s unique situation such as their age, health, family health history, personal eye history and environment. Recently, the University of Waterloo prepared an evidenced based study examining this very question. The Canadian Association of Optometrists published guidelines based on this study. Of course your optometrist will consider theseguidelines and your individual circumstances to recommend your appropriate follow-up.
