Children’s Eye Exams in Rocklin


Children’s Eyes Need Comprehensive Care

Children need their eyes for more than seeing; they complete a multitude of visual tasks each day. Your child’s eyes grow with them, developing as they interact with the world around them. During this period, several eye conditions and diseases may arise.

When a child has a vision problem, it can affect their ability to perform the vital visual skills they need to succeed. Regularly scheduled eye exams are the best way to help protect your child’s vision and diagnose any potential complications.

The Importance of Eye Exams 

Almost 80% of a child’s learning is visual, and any problems can affect their ability to learn. Studies have found that children suffering from vision problems more frequently struggle in school and have poorer visual efficiency abilities. With intervention, we can help treat any eye conditions your child is experiencing. 

Eye exams should happen many times throughout childhood as they reach certain visual milestones. Many eye-related changes occur as your child grows, and regular eye exams can help determine if there are any issues present. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, your child should receive an eye exam at:

  • 6–12 months
  • 12–36 months
  • 3–5 years
  • Annually after 5 years

Several eye conditions can affect your child’s vision and ocular health. If untreated, they may affect your child’s ability to understand the world around them. Some common eye conditions include:

How to Identify a Possible Vision Problem 

Your child may not be able to tell you if they suffer from any visual problems. They may assume everyone sees this way because it is all they have experienced. If your child shows any of the following symptoms, please book an appointment for a comprehensive eye examination: 

  • Frequently rubbing their eyes or blinking often
  • Short attention span 
  • Frequent headaches 
  • Avoiding reading or other close-up activities 
  • Covering one eye
  • Tilting head to one side 
  • Holding reading materials close to their face
  • Complaining of fatigue or discomfort 
  • Turning of an eye inward or outward 
  • Seeing double
  • Losing place when reading
  • Difficulty remembering what they read 

Booking your child in for a comprehensive eye exam can help identify any possible problems. The earlier the diagnosis, the earlier we can begin treatment to help protect your child’s vision. 

Our staff cares about offering your child a comfortable, stress-free experience. Book an appointment, and we can protect your child’s ocular health together.
