Maintaining healthy eyes requires regular eye examinations. Our staff is experienced in all aspects of vision care and we look forward to fulfilling all of your eye care needs.
More than meets the eye
Although we have five senses, 80% of our daily input comes from vision. Our goal at Roseville Vision Center is to protect this vital function and keep our patients seeing clearly for life. A comprehensive vision examination includes screening for certain serious ocular conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and retinal detachment just to name a few. Our optometrist is also able to screen for certain systemic conditions like diabetes and hypertension by examining the inside of your eyes. Our full scope of optometric care includes comprehensive vision exams, pediatric vision exams, management of acute and chronic ocular health problems, specialty contact lens fitting and vision training.
Children's vision and exam recommendations
Few things are as precious as the gift of sight. What many people may not realize is that the eyes are only part of the visual system and we actually 'see' with our brain (visual cortex). During the first 6-8 years of a person's life, the visual system is developing connections between the eyes (the videocamera) and the brain (the television). If a child goes untreated with a focusing error, eye turn, or other obstruction of vision during these formative years, they will develop substandard visual acuity that carries over into adulthood.
The American Optometric Association recommends that parents bring infants in for a checkup at 6 months to 1 year to screen for eye turns (strabismus), health issues, and vision problems (refractive error). If there are no ocular health or vision problems at this time, the next comprehensive eye exam should occur between the ages of 3 and 4. Safeguarding your preschooler's vision prior to entering kindergarten is an essential step in ensuring optimal learning.
