West Shore Eye Care is proud to be a member of InfantSEE, a public health program managed by Optometry Care, which provides no-cost access to an eye-care doctor.
Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye assessment at 6 months.
West Shore Eye Care will test for:
Excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
Eye movement ability
Eye health problems
While these problems are not common, it is still important to identify children who have them at a young age. Vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct if treatment begins early.
West Shore Eye Care hopes that eye health and vision care become an essential part of your infant's wellness care. Under InfantSEE, West Shore Eye Care will provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.
