InfantSEE, sponsored by the American Optometric Association (firstname.lastname@example.org), is a FREE assessment of a child’s eye and eyesight by an optometrist. Dr. Renner and Dr. Perry are proud participants in such a worthwhile program.
Here is a bit about infant and child vision:
“Undetected and untreated eye and vision disorders, such as amblyopia and strabismus, too often become barriers to learning, leading to delayed reading and poorer outcomes in school. In-person comprehensive eye exams provided by a doctor of optometry are essential and thoroughly effective at identifying and ensuring early treatment for the range of vision and eye health issues that can impact a child’s development and learning abilities.
While many parents may think that a vision screening is enough, a study funded by the National Eye Institute found that even the most sophisticated vision screening tools, administered by the most highly-trained vision screeners, will miss one-third of children with an eye or vision disorder. InfantSEE provides early intervention using necessary specialized equipment and procedures-which are not available as part of most vision screenings.
Since many eye problems arise from conditions that can be identified by an eye doctor in the infant’s first year of life, a parent can give an infant a great gift by seeking an InfantSEE assessment in addition to the wellness evaluation of the eyes that is done by a pediatrician or family practice doctor.” Read more at:
