Once a year. You just don't know when some small thing might be wrong. Also if you strain your eyes or use the wrong strength over the counter glasses, it doesn't really help your eyes.

Once a year, they send me a reminder but they said I am going to get a Cadillac in a couple of years, so I'm excited about that.

Not nearly enough since I have an eye disease that requires me to live in the darkened house. My other specialists are keeping me alive. I cannot set aside money for my health needs because I live on disability only which barely covers rent and utilities.

Once a year, unless I am having difficulty seeing the fine print.

Now once a year (after being twice a year) since I had a retina detachment followed by cataract surgery in that same eye (rapid growth of the cataract in that eye was due to anti-inflamatory eye drops post-op speeding the growth of the cataract).  So glad being back to once a year.

@catwoman500 - And I thanked Teri, because when I checked when I went last, I realized I missed an annual visit late 2016/early 2017! Next morning I scheduled one for their first available early February!
