Although most of us believe in the miracles of modern medicine it is always better to get rid of any eye disorders and diseases we may have. We shall first of all take care of and protect our vision and not to underestimate the prevention and thus in particular after the 40th year of life when our eyes begin to age gradually and different eye diseases may occur, including even serious ones as glaucoma or retinal diseases.
The recommended frequency of preventive eye examinations is of course different - depending on age and other disorders and diseases. Persons with a higher risk of developing an eye disease (e.g. suffering from more important refractive disorders, diabetes or having an eye disease in the family) should definitely not underestimate the preventive examinations. Many eye diseases can be treated if discovered in time. The sooner their treatment begins the better results can be expected.
Generally speaking, at a younger age it is recommended to visit an ophthalmologist every two to three years. At the age of 40 these visits should be more frequent, at least once a year.
The comprehensive eye examination includes the detection of objective and subjective refraction with subsequent examination of the distance and near vision, measurement of the intraocular eye pressure, examination of the anterior segment of the eye and the eye background on the slit lamp. If necessary, there are recommended additional specialized examinations.
