Prioritize Your Eyes
How often you have your eyes checked depends on a few factors. If you are at a higher risk of eye disease or have a preexisting medical condition like diabetes, you may require more frequent exams to ensure the health of your eye is monitored closely.
When You Should Have Your Eyes Checked
If you are in fine health and not at risk for any ocular conditions, you can follow the recommendations laid out by the American Optometric Association:
- Ages 18–64: Every 2 years
- Ages 65+: Every year
At-risk patients will likely need their eyes checked every year.

I am 75 years old and have had issues with my eyes since birth, probably. I moved to Arizona 3 and 1/2 years ago and had to find all new doctors. On one of my first visits she diagnosed one of my conditions. It is called trichiasis. That is a condition where a person has two rows of eyelashes. They tend to curl inward irritating the eye. Now all that I need to do is have them pulled every few weeks and fairly soon they won’t even grow back.
I am so pleased to have found Dr. Serena Shao. She is opening a practice in Scottsdale and I will be driving 40 miles to be seen by her and her staff.
Every time I’ve came in for my eye visits Dr.Shao is very professional, thorough, and is always warm and sweet. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a eye visit or glasses. I give her a 10/10. I’ve been to several eye doctors and she is by far best one I’ve ever had!
Dr. Shao is super thorough and give good advise on my super dry eyes. I’m following her from her previous practice to her new practice
