Helping Infants to Establish a Lifetime of Healthy Vision
Optometrists encourage parents to include a trip to the optometrist on the list of well-baby check-ups. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine the healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure an infant has healthy vision for successful development—now and in the future.
InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation,is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. Under this program,AOA optometrists provide a no-cost comprehensive eye and vision assessment for infants within the first year of life regardless of a family’s income or access to insurance coverage.
Our thanks to industry partner Johnson & Johnson Vision, for their unwavering support of InfantSEE since the program was launched in 2005. In addition to general program support, Johnson & Johnson Vision’s contribution also creates opportunities for in-person and virtual training workshops throughout the school year to help optometry students learn infant exam skills.
