The American Optometric Society now recommends that children have vision exams before the age of five. For adults, it is recommended that vision exams are provided yearly in many situations, especially if you have a family history of eye diseases, or suffer with eyestrain or headaches near the temples. It is very common for children to develop problems with nearsightedness by the third grade. There are preventive methods that can be done to keep this from happening. If you are in your 40s, you can also expect to begin to see changes in your near vision. Once you are over 60, you are likely to experience getting cataracts or other eye changes including glaucoma, macular degeneration or dry eye. It is important to have eye exams to make sure that you are being treated for any eye problems which are developing. Glaucoma is a very serious eye disease which shows no symptoms in the early stages. So, the only way that you can really tell that this eye disease is developing, and needs early treatment, is with a comprehensive eye exam. In order to keep your eyes healthy, it is helpful to eat a predominantly plant-based diet. Some items can also be prescribed to reduce the effects of certain vision problems.
