InfantSEE® serves more than 100,000 babies
Nearly 7,300 volunteer AOA optometrists in all 50 states have seen more than 100,000 babies through the InfantSEE® program.
Vision care for children is a high priority for the AOA. This historic milestone for the AOA's charitable and volunteer work complements advocacy efforts to provide eye care for all children.
The program began in 2005, when Optometry Cares®--The AOA Foundation and The Vision Care InstituteTM, LLC, a Johnson & Johnson company, partnered to create InfantSEE®. Today, this no-cost public health program provides professional eye care for infants nationwide.
Through the program, volunteer optometrists perform a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment for infants in their first year of life. This assessment offers early detection of eye and vision problems at no cost, regardless of a family's income.
