Infant Vision Screening – Don’t Wait Until it’s Too Late

1 in 14 children have some degree of vision impairment. Most of which, like lazy eye for example, can be treated and cured if detected early enough in a child’s life. If left undetected, however, seemingly harmless inconveniences in a child’s vision can actually cause severe vision impairment or even blindness once adulthood is reached.

Today, there is no excuse for such a thing. Sponsored by former President Jimmy Carter, programs like InfantSEE aims to eliminate the vision troubles of American infants. This program involves volunteer optometrists who will test your 6-12 month old baby, FREE OF CHARGE, for things like lazy eye, strabismus, glaucoma, significant refractive errors like far-sightedness, near-sightedness, and astigmatism, and retinal blastoma.

Not only is this program free but it is also conducted in such a way as to be a fun experience. Don’t take the risk of assuming your baby’s eyes are healthy. Have the piece of mind of knowing.
