Eyecare experts recommend that people have their eyes examined every one to two years, and eyeglass prescriptions are typically valid for this length of time. Federal law requires optometrists to provide patients with a copy of their eyeglass prescription so that they can order glasses from any provider they choose. Regular checkups allow for a more accurate eyeglass prescription, since changes in eyesight may not be apparent to the patient. Additionally, frequent eye exams allow earlier detection of eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, or corneal and retinal disorders.
