InfantSEE: a free vision and eye health assessment for babies.

Babies learn to see over a period of time, much like they learn to walk and talk. They are not born with all the visual abilities they need in life. The ability to focus their eyes, move them accurately, and use them together as a team must be learned. Also, they need to learn how to use the visual information the eyes send to their brain in order to understand the world around them and interact with it appropriately.

Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision conditions in infants can cause developmental delays and are easier to correct if treatment begins early. That's why the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your infant's first eye exam around six months of age.

Under this program called InfantSEE, participating doctors of optometry provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between six and 12 months of age free of charge regardless of family income or access to insurance coverage.

Drs. Kinzer, Hakes, and Landsverk are proud to be InfantSEE providers. They have provided care for hundreds of babies and look forward to being part of your baby’s healthcare team.
