Each of our patients needing a follow-up examination is examined according to their age and individual needs. We recommend people under 19 and over 65 years of age to have a yearly eye examination. People between 19 and 65 years of age should have an eye exam at least once every two years.
Our optometrists offer pre- and post-operative evaluations for people who have had corrective refractive eye surgery. We also offer our patients with follow-up examinations for post-cataract surgeries and the monitoring of eye conditions being treated. Some of our patients requiring a follow-up evaluation include patients who have had cataract surgery, patients being treated for glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy, dry-eye syndrome (determined by the severity and complications) and numerous other retinal and ocular pathological conditions.
Some patients suffering acute problems such as recurring conjunctivitis, irititis, blepharitis , episcleritis, chalazion, trichiasis and hordeolum, among others, may require follow-up examinations depending on the severity.
It is important to note that diabetics should have a yearly examination by an optometrist in order to monitor for diabetic retinopathy.
