Experts from American Optometric Association and American Public Health Association (APHA) agree that visual development is most dramatic between 6 and 12 months of age and that early detection can prevent and help reduce the threat of serious vision impairments. In fact, one in every 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems by the time they are 18 years of age. If left untreated, eye and vision problems can impact learning and may lead to permanent vision impairment.
InfantSEE is a one-time, no-cost public health program that provides eye care for infants 6 months to 12 months of age. In effort to encourage infant eye and vision assessments and to ensure they are accessible to everyone, the American Optometric Association and The Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc, have partnered to create InfantSEE.
