Helping Infants to Establish a Lifetime of Healthy Vision
President Jimmy Carter is the Honorary Chair for InfantSEE®.
Cooing, sitting up and crawling are signs that a baby is growing. Her vision has stages of development, but this process rarely has visible signs.
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 healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure a baby has healthy vision for successful development-now and in the future.
InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry's CharityTM - 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 comprehensive eye and vision assessments for infants within the first year of life regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage.
