About Eye Exams at
Hudson Eye Physicians
& Surgeons, LLC
Regular eye exams for adults, and especially seniors, are the best way to prevent eye health problems such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic eye problems leading to vision loss.
Regular eye exams for children, teens and young adults help to ensure that vision problems are not interfering with school, learning, and even sports activities.
We recommend that all patients have regular eye examinations depending on your age, your health, your family history of eye problems, and whether you have been diagnosed or treated for any eye conditions or diseases in the past.

When Should I Have My Eyes Examined?
Any time that you experience a sudden change in your vision, pain, redness, discharge, flashes of light, and/or floaters or spots, you should contact one of our offices immediately and tell the receptionist what you are experiencing so they will prioritize a time for your appointment.
Eye Exams for Adults & Seniors
If you are in overall good health, and to the best of your knowledge you have not been diagnosed with any eye health problems or eye diseases, scheduling an eye examination every two years is usually sufficient. It is important that if you have any family member who has been told that they have glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or you are diabetic, you will need to be examined at least each year or as directed by your eye doctor or family doctor. A number of eye problems and eye conditions become more frequent with age. In particular, cataract formation and other age-related macula problems increase in frequency for patients over 55-60 years of age, and even healthy people should consider scheduling a routine eye exam each year if they fall into this age group. Anyone over 40 should have an eye exam and glaucoma testing each year, and anyone over 50 with a family history of macular degeneration should also be examined annually.
