InfantSEE


The InfantSEE program was developed by the American Optometric Association in partnership with the Vision Care Institute of the Johnson and Johnson Company.  InfantSEE is a public health program providing eye care to infants nationwide. Through InfantSEE, optometrists will provide a one-time comprehensive eye examination to babies in the first year of life at no cost.

Why are optometrists participating in this program?  Because 1 in every 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed vision problems.  Many of these problems can be prevented or more easily corrected IF they are identified at an early age.  Early intervention is essential to successful treatment outcomes, and yet most children never see an eyecare professional until they enter school (or even older!).

When examining your baby, the optometrist will answer these questions:
