Mercer In-Sight Family Eye Care offers FREE eye exams for infants 6months – 12months of age through our InfantSEE program.
Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months.
Things that our doctors 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 important to identify children who have them at this young age. Vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct if treatment begins early.
Call today to schedule your infant for this very important exam!
