Adults under 40 with good vision and no family history of eye disease should have an eye exam every two years. However, as we age, we are more likely to suffer from eye conditions such as cataracts or glaucoma. Many other conditions may show early signs in the eyes, including high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. Early detection by an eye care specialist can aid in successful treatment.
