InfantSEE® 

No-cost eyecare exams for infants aged 6-12 months 

Triangle Visions Optometry is proud to participate in the InfantSEE® program. The majority of visual changes occur in the first 6-12 months of an infant's life as the visual system becomes the dominant sense, hence the importance of a comprehensive eye exam for all infants. Through InfantSEE®, optometrists provide a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year of life, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income.

The InfantSEE® program:

  • Provides no-cost access to an eye-care doctor who has the instruments and resources not available to general-care doctors like pediatricians and family physicians
  • Detects potential problems that, if undetected, may lead to learning and developmental issues later
  • Gives new parents the peace of mind that their infant’s vision is developing properly

Prevalence of Vision Problems and Eye Diseases That Can Develop in Children

  • 1 in 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed vision problems
  • 1 in 30 children will be affected by amblyopia – often referred to as lazy eye – a leading cause of vision loss in people younger than 45 years
  • 1 in 25 will develop strabismus – more commonly known as crossed-eyes – a risk factor for amblyopia
  • 1 in 33 will show significant refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
  • 1 in 100 will exhibit evidence of eye disease – e.g. glaucoma
  • 1 in 20,000 children have retinoblastoma (intraocular cancer) the seventh most common pediatric cancer
