On Tuesday, I brought Julianna to my Eye Doctor for her eye screening. I know you might be thinking... "Isn't she a bit young for a vision test?" - Well it's not a vision test. It's a free screening that some eye doctors offer to ensure the health of your baby's eyes. It's called INFANT-SEE.
Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure a baby has healthy vision for successful development-now and in the future.
For those of you that don't know about this program, and have a baby between 6-12 months... check the Infant-See website to see if your eye doctor offers this program.
My eye doctor used toys and made the whole process fun for Julianna. She was very good and didn't mind any part of what he did to check her eyes.
My eye doctor told me about the screening when I was pregnant, and I'm really happy there is something like this out there for my daughter. Eye health is very important and an early eye screening can help to detect any early issues that might ordinarily go unnoticed until much later in childhood.
Here is Julianna waiting patiently in the waiting room of the Eye Doctor's office. She was such a good little girl. All the girls that work in the office were ooh-ing & aahh-ing over her and saying how good she was! She sat there and laughed the whole time!
