An eye exam is recommended every year for most adults ages 18 to 60. This includes a thorough history of your health, how well you see without correction, and several other preliminary tests. A refraction is usually performed to determine the strength of lenses you need to see best. An additional step is performed to evaluate the health of the front surface, as well as the inside of your eyes.
Other supplemental testing may be performed based on previous ﬁndings and all results will be discussed at the conclusion of the exam. The entire process usually takes 20 to 30 minutes.
