Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at six months.
Things that the Optometrist will test for include:
  • excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
  • eye movement ability
  • eye health problems
These problems are not common, but it is essential to identify children with them at this young age. If treatment begins early, vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct.
InfantSEE, a public health program managed by Optometry Cares – the AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. Under this program, Forsyth Family Eye Care optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between six and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.
