Long-Term Care for Healthy Eyes

Our eyes are extraordinary organs. We rely on our eyes more than any other sensory organ to explore, learn about, and experience the world around us. Second only to our brains, our eyes are the most complex organ in the human body. 

This complexity makes our eyes fragile and delicate. They need specialized care from knowledgeable, experienced, and compassionate eye care professionals. At Arena Eyeworks, we care about how your eyes work. And with the strength of Total Vision behind us, we can provide thorough, cutting-edge eye exams that provide a genuinely personalized experience. 

Please book your appointment today and see how our team can help you!

Why Are Eye Exams Important? 

Eye exams go beyond just determining your visual acuity and updating your current prescription. They’re essential for detecting and diagnosing vision-threatening eye diseases before they become too advanced to treat. 

We become more susceptible to eye health risks as we get older. Age causes many changes in our eyes and can lead to age-related eye conditions like presbyopia, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Eye exams are also valuable for detecting other health conditions not obviously related to your eyes, like diabetes, heart conditions, and lupus

Regular eye exams allow us to monitor changes in your eye health so we can identify warning signs of underlying eye problems earlier and more accurately. 

How Often Do You Need Eye Exams?

Everybody is different – your eye care needs are personal and unique to you. How often you need an eye exam depends on these needs, your medical history, and specific health concerns. So, until we get to know you and your eyes, we’d like to see you every year for a comprehensive eye exam. This schedule will allow us to establish a baseline for your eye health.

If you are low risk, we may recommend the frequency recommended by the American Optometric Association:

  • Adults 18 to 64: Every 2 years
  • Adults 65 and older: Every year

If you’re high-risk, we’ll likely need to see you every year or more. You may be considered high-risk if you:
