First eye examination should be between the ages of 6 and 9 months
Preschool Children (2 to 5 years)
Should undergo an eye examination annually
School Age Children (6 to 19 years)
Should undergo an eye examination annually
Adults (20 to 64 years)
Adults (20 to 64) Should undergo an eye examination every 2 years
