When should I get an eye test?

Our eye care professionals recommend that adults should get an eye test at least every two years, and children should get one every year or as recommended by their eye care professional. Those over 60 should be tested more frequently. If you’re experiencing any eye or vision problems, you should talk to your eye care professional as soon as you can. It’s possible that your contact lens prescription, like a glasses prescription, can change regularly, making regular eye checkups and contact lens check ups essential.
