What Is InfantSee?

InfantSee is a public health program that launched in 2005, dedicated to ensuring that access to eye and vision assessments are an essential component of a child’s wellness care. Failing to treat eye problems at young age can negatively affect a child’s learning greatly, and can have a lasting result that continues to impact them throughout their life. Even if your child appears to have no obvious eyesight or learning issues, it’s still important to bring them for regular appointments. In fact, the American Optometric association recommends that your child have their first eye examination between 6 and 12 months of age.

What are the risks?

Babies are susceptible to a variety of eye conditions, and when discovered early and treated correctly, can be successfully rectified. Strabismus or “crossed eyes” for example affects 1 in 25 babies, and amblyopia or “lazy eye” affects an additional 1 in 30.

How to prepare for your first visit.

Consider the time of day

When booking your appointment it’s important to let the office know about any special conditions or concerns. Be sure to also consider your baby’s schedule when choosing an appointment time, making sure it’s not close to their typical naptime.

Bring a bottle, and their favorite toy

During your baby’s exam it’s important for them to be alert. Since this is usually at its peak during feeding times, we recommend that you have a bottle on hand. Also, to ensure your baby is comfortable and to capture their attention, feel free to bring along their favorite toy or object.

If possible, leave other children at home

It’s important that we capture your child’s full attention during the exam. As a result, we try to keep all potential distractions to a minimum. We understand that this is not always possible, but try to arrange for the infant and parent to be the only people in the exam room.

At Cedar Park Vision, we understand the importance of proactive attention for your child’s eyesight. As a registered InfantSEE office, we provide a comprehensive evaluation that goes beyond the typical eye evaluation that is performed by a pediatrician or family doctor.
