InfantSEE is a program launched in 2005 for those under the age of one year. Originally it was a study that was to last for just a year or two or three. It was so successful it has been perpetuated, and I do not know the American Optometric Association’s current stand on its status, but it goes on. The information from each child is sent to the AOA, but no names are used. It is only information to establish data on children’s eye health.
Herein below the rest of the information is taken from the AOA website:
InfantSEE, developed by the American Optometric Association and Johnson & Johnson Vision, is a public health program designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. We feel so strongly about the importance of healthy vision that participating member optometrists will provide a no-cost comprehensive infant eye and vision assessment within the first year of life.
