10 Years of InfantSEE
We are proud to take part in the InfantSEE program, which turns 10 years old today!
Here at ey2eye, Dr. Doan participates in the InfantSEE program, where she provides free vision screenings for infants 6-12 months of age. We wanted to share with you a few of the great benefits of this program on the blog today.
The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months of age. When you come in for your visit, Dr. Doan will test for a few of the following things:
- excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
- eye movement ability
- eye health problems
While these problems are not common, early screening and detection makes it much easier to treat any vision problems. The goal of the InfantSEE program is to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. Research shows that at 6 months of age, many of a baby’s vision functions are fully developed, making this the perfect time to get their vision and eye health screened.
