We ask that you provide a list of prescription medications and any vitamins or dietary supplements you’re currently taking. If possible, you should also bring your glasses or contact lenses. If dilation is necessary, you may be sensitive to light for a few hours after your exam, so you may want to bring sunglasses.
The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that adults wearing glasses or contacts as well as adults over 60 should see their eye doctor every year or as recommended. If no vision correction is required, adults aged 18 to 60 should have eye exams every two years.
