InfantSEE is a no-cost national program where children under the age of 1 can have a comprehensive eye exam with Optometrists that specialize in pediatric eye care. The program can be for any child, whether they have insurance or not as it is not something that gets billed to the insurance or the patient. It is designed to detect and prevent different eye conditions including amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), significant refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism), and retinoblastoma (intraocular cancer).

The InfantSEE program was created for the public as many children were not being screened enough or properly screened to detect vision or eye health issues. Too many children were being missed. The typical screening at the pediatrician’s does not involve dilation drops or a check for prescription. It is mainly a vision screening which does not constitute a comprehensive eye exam. Even with the screening children can be missed so it is important to have an eye doctor perform a comprehensive eye exam to rule out any eye health issues.

The InfantSEE exam consists of a general history dealing with behaviors and an initial interaction with the doctor and child. Next the doctor will check the child’s eye movements and how well they use their eyes together. The doctor will next check if there is any prescription needed along with a gross test of the child’s vision abilities. Then there will be the general health check which includes eye pressure check and dilation with eyedrops. Once the doctor takes a look at the overall structure of the eyes they will go over the results they have found and make recommendations for further action or monitoring.

If your child has not had a comprehensive eye exam and they meet the criteria for being a part of the free InfantSEE program, then call for an appointment with one of our 2 InfantSEE providers at Solinsky EyeCare today (860) 233-2020.
