1) Do you or a family member wear glasses for reading, distance vision or both?
2) Do your children, grandchildren, or other children you care for sit too close to the TV, have trouble with hand-eye coordination or complain of headaches?
3) Has your school-age child or grandchild not received a thorough eye exam from an eye doctor within the past two years? (A school exam doesn’t count.)
4) Do you or does anyone in your immediate family have high blood pressure or diabetes?
5) Do you or a family member spend several hours each day looking at a computer screen or experience frequent headaches after working at a computer?
6) Have you or a family member been diagnosed or treated for cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration or other eye problems?
7) Do you spend time outdoors without sunglasses that have 100% UV and glare protection?
8) Do you have tired or burning eyes or rub your eyes frequently?
9) Do you or a family member have difficulty seeing at night?
If you answered yes to more than one question for yourself or a family member, or if it’s been longer than one to three years (depending on your age or doctor’s recommendation) since you or a family member last had an eye exam, it’s time to schedule an appointment.
