I spy with my little eye one regular exam that many people overlook. We're talking about knowing when to get an eye exam. Regular eye exams are an important part of optometric health. 

It's important to obtain routine eye exams, per the American Optometric Association's (AOA) guidelines, to evaluate your eye health and vision. The American Optometric Association is a federation of state, student and armed forces optometric associations that represents more than 36,000 optometry professionals. 

It's also important to understand the difference between general vision screening programs and comprehensive eye exams. While screenings have their place, they are no substitute for thorough, regular eye exams.
