When it comes to our eyes and concerns with our vision, we may have several questions. Here are some common questions aimed at optometrists. How often do I need to visit my eye doctor? If you require corrective lenses or are over the age of 60, it is recommended to visit your family eye care provider every year. For individuals who do not need corrective lenses, you can visit your optometrist every two years. Regardless of the group, you fall in, comprehensive eye exams are important for both your vision and health!
