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.

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:
- Have an eye disease or a family history of eye disease.
- Have a health condition that affects your vision, like diabetes.
- Have a high or progressive refractive error.
- Wear contact lenses.
- Have had eye surgery or an eye injury.
- Work a visually demanding or hazardous job.
- Have vision loss in one or both eyes.
- Take medications with eye-related side effects.
