Most medical aid schemes will only cover the eye test once every two years. This frequency is okay except in the following cases:

  1. Children who wear spectacles
  2. Glaucoma suspects
  3. Anyone over the age of 40
  4. If you suffer from chronic conditions such as hypertension or Diabetes

Spectacles may not need to be changed every year in the above mentioned cases, but comprehensive annual exams are essential to make sure that the eyes are still healthy.
