Become an InfantSEE Provider!
InfantSEE, a public health program, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life. Under this program, AOA member optometrists provide a no-cost comprehensive eye and vision assessment for infants 6-12 months old regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage.
InfantSEE providers are making an impact across the country. Since the inception of the program in 2005 over 165,000 infants have benefited from the program. Of those reported, 9% were discovered to have ocular concerns that required follow up care. As you know, this early detection is critical for successful treatment and prevention of developmental delays.
We invite you to become an InfantSEE Provider and join us in ensuring babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn.
