How Often Should I Visit My Calgary Optometrist?

We go to the doctor and dentist regularly, but how often do you book an eye care appointment?  Even if you don’t wear glasses or contact lenses, there are many health benefits involved with regular optometrist appointments and Market Mall Optometry wanted to share them with you. 

First of all, the best way to protect yourself, preserve your health and prevent serious ailments is with early detection via preventative maintenance.  Going to the doctor at least once a year for a full check up is recommended to ensure your overall health.  Following up with the dentist twice a year keeps our teeth clean and healthy.  Most of us only go to our Calgary eye clinic when we need new eyeglass frames or sporadically throughout our lives, but you’re really doing yourself an injustice.   


Did you know that children should have an optometry exam between six to nine months of age?  This is to verify their visual functionality and ability to see clearly without the assistance of glasses. Anyone with a history of vision issues should visit their optometrist regularly.  This will protect them from further issues and reduce the severity of problems that may arise.  


Adults between the ages of 20 and 30 should schedule regular eye check ups with their Calgary optometrist once a year as long as they aren’t experiencing any eye problems. If you notice any changes in your vision, such as headache, increased tears, pain or flashes of light, you should seek attention immediately. 


Even as early as your thirties, your vision begins to change and you’re more susceptible to eye disease. Once you approach your late thirties, be sure to visit your eye care professional every year.  If you are diabetic, you are also at higher risk for eye disorders, such as glaucoma and cataracts and an annual eye exam is highly recommended.  


We only have one set of eyes and we need to take care of them.  If are having any unusual eye symptoms or haven’t had an eye check up in a long time, call Market Mall Optometry today located in NW Calgary at 403.286.4884.
