At Lucent Vision we provide comprehensive eye examinations for patients over the age of 12. We are able to give updated glasses prescriptions. We examine patients with diabetes and/or hypertension for any associated eye complications, and we promptly deliver these reports to the primary care doctor. A general eye examination also includes screening for glaucoma, cataracts, eye cancers, and macular degeneration. Below you will find a chart provided by the American Academy of Ophthalmology about their recommendations on eye examination frequency.
|Age or Condition||Interval for Eye Examination|
|Healthy patients over the age of 40||Baseline eye examination|
|Healthy patients ages 40 to 54||Every 2 to 4 years|
|Healthy patients ages 55 to 64||Every 1 to 3 years|
|Healthy patients over age 65||Every 1 to 2 years|
|Diabetes||At time of diagnosis and annually thereafter|
|Injury, vision loss, eye-related symptoms||As soon as possible|
In addition to general eye examinations, we provide free consultations for LASIK eye surgery!
