Health Tip of the Day

Healthy Eyes

Eye diseases may seem to be only a problem for older adults, but young and middle-aged adults also may be affected by them. All adults should have a complete eye exam at least once between the ages of 20 and 29, at least twice between the ages of 30 and 39, and every two to four years between the ages of 40 and 65, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. People older than 65 should have their eyes examined every one to two years. People with diabetes should have an eye exam every six months to a year, or as recommended by their ophthalmologist.
