Teenager

Eye and vision system development are complete by the time people reach their early 20s and normally remain steady for several decades afterward. Vision correction prescriptions for eyeglasses or contact lenses change only slightly or not at all. As a teenager, your vision may have begun to stabilize; still, if you wear contact lenses, see your eye specialist yearly to make sure your prescription is still right for you. Whenever a problem is suspected, your eyes should be screened for visual acuity and alignment by a pediatrician, family doctor, optometrist, orthoptist or person trained in vision assessment of school-aged children, such as a school nurse. If an alignment problem or other eye health issues is suspected, you should have a comprehensive exam by an Eye M.D.

If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, you need to have regular eye exams and work with your doctors to control weight and blood sugar as well as blood pressure and cholesterol.
