Helping Infants to Establish a Lifetime of Healthy Vision


President Carter

President Jimmy Carter is the Honorary Chair for InfantSEE®.

Cooing, sitting up and crawling are signs that your baby is growing. Your baby's vision has stages of development too, but usually there are no signs to mark the progress.

The American Optometric Association encourages parents to include a trip to the optometrist in 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 your child has healthy vision for successful development—now and in the future.

InfantSEE® is a public health program, managed by Optometry's Charity™ - The AOA Foundation,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 infant eye and vision assessment within the first year of life regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage. We are proud to take part in this program as we feel very passionate about the need for childs eye examinations.
