|SAVE VISION, HEALTH and POTENTIALLY, LIVES.|
When my daughter was just 8 months old , she was diagnosed fatal eye cancer , Retinoblastoma . If her cancer had been detected month later , the outcome may not have been as positive and for to thank the InfantSEE program !
Although she saw her pediatrician for monthly and then bi - monthly well checks , nothing was ever suspected . In fact , the quick look in the eyes that is intended to find vision and health problems at well checks didn't work as her eyes required dilation to detect the tumor . In order for her tumor to be found before her cancer spread to her brain , she needed the comprehensive exam that the InfantSEE program provided .
Today , she is vibrant , strong and healthy and we have our specialists and the InfantSEE program to thank for saving her life ! I urge you to support the InfantSEE program ; incorporating this exam in every child's healthy baby schedule could save vision , health and potentially , lives . " - Parent , AZ
|THE OPTOMETRIST MADE IT LOOK EASY.|
"After learning that 1 in 5 preschoolers has an eye or vision condition that can impact their ability to learn I was motivated to take my son in for an InfantSEE assessment.
The scheduling process was straightforward and the InfantSEE assessment was really thorough but quick — the optometrist made it look easy!
My baby was smiling and laughing thanks to the lights and fun toys utilized during the assessment. I learned a lot about my baby's eyes including what signs to look for that might indicate vision problems in toddlerhood.
I have peace of mind knowing that his eye health has been evaluated and that his vision is on track with his peers." - Parent, MO
|I THOUGHT I WAS UP TO SPEED ON INFANT HEALTH.|
"I'm a physician and thought I was up to speed on infant health: vaccines, hearing test at birth, regular check ups and even brushing those little teeth when they sprout up.
I did not know that eye exams were a part of infant health until our pediatrician gave us a paper on the InfantSEE program.
We took our daughter to a wonderful optometrist in Herrin, Illinois -Dr. Chase Rudolph.
|MANY VISION PROBLEMS DON'T SHOW UP ON SIMPLE SCREENINGS.|
"I was so happy to learn about the InfantSEE program for my baby. Our regular pediatrician offers a vision check but it isn't nearly as thorough and there was some question over whether my insurance would even cover it. It was so easy to go to InfantSEE.org and find a participating doctor of optometry close to my house.
I was able to schedule my baby's free assessment the same week! The optometrist was great with babies and so informative!
She explained that many vision problems don't show up on simple screenings that the pediatrician or school may offer so it's important to see an optometrist in baby's first year of life to discover potential problems early.
I hope all parents take advantage of this FREE program!!" - Parent, TX
