InfantSEE is a public health program designed to provide eye care for infants. Optometrists will provide a one-time FREE comprehensive eye examination to infants in their first year of life. This assessment offers early detection for potential vision problems at no cost. Optometrists in this program will make sure your infant's eyes are developing normally by checking their eye movements, eye alignment, and signs for near or farsightedness.
By taking your child to an eye doctor early is important, because almost 80% of their learning comes through their eyes. By evaluating basic visual skills such as eye teaming, peripheral awareness, and focusing ability, we are able to make sure your child is on track for their vision development and learning.
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye examination at 6 months of age. Children should then receive their next eye exam at 3 years of age, and once more before first grade around 5-6 years of age. Children who need glasses or contact lenses are recommended to be examined annually. At Golden Vision Optometry, Dr. Diana Yan, is an optometrist in the InfantSEE program. If you are interested in a FREE comprehensive eye exam for your infant between 6-12 months of age, schedule an appointment with us today!
