General Eye Care
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!
