The American Optometric Association (AOA) and the Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. have partnered to create InfantSEE®, a no-cost public health program, to identify the potential for eye and vision problems in infants in their first year of life – one of the most critical stages of development.
Through InfantSEE®, optometrists will provide a one time eye assessment to infants between six and 12 months of age, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems, at no cost, regardless of income. This visit to the optometrist is complementary to the routine well-care exams a baby receives at the pediatrician’s office.
242 Iowa optometrists have joined approximately 7,500 volunteer optometrists across the nation offering comprehensive, no-cost assessments. For a listing of InfantSEE® providers in your area, log on to http://www.infantsee.org/.
