We are proud members of  and are pleased to provide your child's first Eye Health Exam!
 
As participants in the InfantSEE program, we look forward to helping you make the most of your child's future, by providing eye assessments to your children within six to twelve months of life.
 
As you think about your child's developmental milestones, remember to consider your child's eye health. Because vision plays a major role in infant development, visual health must be checked early and regularly. In fact, the American Optometric Association recommends that children receive their first comprehensive eye assessment at 6 months of age. With the Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. promising multi-year support, InfantSEE has the potential to ensure early childhood wellness care to include a professional eye and vision assessment as a necessary step in an infant's overall health and wellness.
 

"As parents, we regularly take our children to the dentist to help prevent cavities. Likewise, we should take our babies to the optometrist to help prevent potential eye and vision problems. Given my family's experience managing vision problems that were not caught early, I strongly encourage all parents with babies to visit an optometrist for an InfantSEE assessment during the first year of their child's life and I applaud AOA for providing parents this opportunity." - Former President Jimmy Carter.

   

One in every 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems, yet only 13 percent of mothers with children younger than 2 years of age said they had taken their babies to see an eye and vision care professional for a regular check-up or well-care visit. Moreover, many children at risk for eye and vision problems are not being identified at an early age, when many of those problems might be prevented or more easily corrected. Some 4.02 million children were born in 2004, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In approximately 4 percent, strabismus will develop, and amblyopia will develop in 3 percent'this equates to as many as 100,000 infants born each year who are at risk for serious eye and vision problems.

An InfantSEE assessment between 6 and 12 months of age is recommended to determine if an infant is at risk for eye or vision disorders. Since many eye problems arise from conditions that can be identified by an eye doctor in the infant's first year of life, you as a parent can give your infant a precious gift with an InfantSEE assessment in addition to the wellness evaluation of the eyes by your pediatrician or family practice doctor.

 
 

Early intervention is critical to successful and cost-effective treatment. Despite the nation's present system of preschool vision screening, there is a need for professional infant eye and vision assessments. Sadly, during the course of their young lives, most children probably never see an eye care specialist who can provide the kind of professional eye assessment necessary to identify critical eye and vision problems at an early stage, and provide the necessary care and treatment.


We have stepped forward to accept our public health role and make a significant contribution in the area of infants' eye and vision health. The American Optometric Association, with The Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. as a working partner, has launched InfantSEE, a first-of-its-kind national program to provide children professional eye and vision care earlier in life. The program will address the early childhood segment of the pre-school population, providing no-cost infant eye and vision assessments before the age of one year.
