Even if you don't need vision correction, you may still need an eye exam every year, especially if you have diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders.

If you are over 40, it's a good idea to have your eyes examined every one to two years to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
