The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recommends an eye disease screening for all adults as they age.

The Academy now recommends that adults with no signs or risk factors for eye disease get a baseline eye disease screening at age 40 — the time when early signs of disease and changes in vision may start to occur.

Based on the results of the initial screening, an ophthalmologist will prescribe the necessary intervals for follow-up exams.

Don't miss out on reading, driving, and watching children and grandchildren grow.  During Healthy Vision Month, remember to schedule your eye exam appointment with a UNC Eye MD by calling 919-966-5509.

Vision is our most precious sense. Protect your sight by getting regular eye exams with an ophthalmologist.
