AOA-member optometrists have volunteered to serve as
InfantSEE® optometrists nationwide.

Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye assessment at 6 months.

Things that the Optometrist will test for include:

  • excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
  • eye movement ability
  • eye health problems

These problems are not common, but it is important to identify children who have them at this young age. Vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct if treatment begins early.

InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares® - the AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life. Under this program, participating optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.

The mission of Optometry Cares - The AOA Foundation is to expand eye care awareness, education and research and access to eye health and vision care to everyone in the United States in order to enhance human performance and quality of life.

Optometry Cares - The AOA Foundation supports VISION USA, InfantSEE, the Scholarship Fund, the National Optometry Hall of Fame, Healthy Eyes Healthy Children Community Grants, the Archives & Museum of Optometry and Optometry's Fund for Disaster Relief.
