Vision problem

What is the time interval for regular checkups for long sightedness? I had problem 10 years back and that time I got -1.25 for left eye and -1.5 for right eye. Six months back also, it was same. Now I am going for new specs. Should I go for fresh checkup?

Hi there...I can understand your concern. If you are changing your spectacles then it is better you go for a check once again. But if you are not changing your spectacles, then getting your eyes examined once a year is enough. For any further queries you can consult your ophthalmologist in person. They will be able to guide you further.
