InfantSEE®: Establishing a Lifetime of Healthy Eyes and Vision
Many thanks to our February 2020 sponsor of the podcast, InfantSEE®, a non-profit program from Optometry Cares - The AOA Foundation.
Have you ever considered taking your baby to the eye doctor to make sure that their vision is developing normally? I know I never thought about that when my children were babies. In fact, my kids are now 5 and 8 years old and I don’t think either of them has ever had a full eye exam because they’ve never told me that anything is wrong with their eyes. But now that I think about it, how would they even know that anything is wrong with their eyes, if they’re used to seeing the world the way that they do?
Young children, especially babies, can’t articulate if something seems a bit off with their vision--which is why the InfantSEE program is dedicated to educating parents to ensure that eye and vision care become an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life.
Through the InfantSEE program, participating optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment for babies between the ages of 6 and 12 months old at no cost, regardless of family income or insurance coverage.
The team at InfantSEE and I feel so strongly about encouraging moms to take action on this message and get their babies signed up for eye appointments that we are hosting a little giveaway this month. Three moms will win a care package of some of my favorite baby items by simply making an appointment for your baby to be seen by a participating InfantSEE optometrist. (See details below.)
I’m so grateful for organizations that are advocating for the health and wellness of families, and InfantSEE is definitely one of those. It’s an honor to partner with them this month as sponsors of 3 in 30.
