How Often Should You Update Your Prescription?

How Often Should You Update Your Prescription?

Regular eye exams and prescription updates are essential for maintaining optimal eye health and vision clarity. At Optistyles, we recommend following these guidelines to determine when it's time for your next prescription update, and we're proud to offer our innovative Teleeyes program for convenient prescription renewals via telehealth.

Factors Affecting Prescription Updates

1. Age

  • Children and Teens: Children should have their eyes examined regularly, with the first comprehensive eye exam at around 6 months of age. After that, exams should occur at age 3 and before starting school, then annually thereafter. Teens may need more frequent exams if they wear glasses or have specific eye conditions.
  • Adults: For adults under 40 with no vision problems, a comprehensive eye exam every 2 years is typically recommended. However, individuals with risk factors or specific eye conditions may require more frequent exams.
  • Seniors: Adults aged 60 and older should have annual eye exams due to the increased risk of age-related eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

2. Vision Changes

  • If you notice any changes in your vision, such as blurred vision, difficulty reading, or eye strain, it's essential to schedule an eye exam promptly. These changes could indicate the need for a prescription update or the presence of an underlying eye condition.

3. Health Conditions

  • Certain health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases, can affect your eye health and vision. Individuals with these conditions may need more frequent eye exams to monitor any changes and ensure early detection of any eye-related complications.
