Des Moines-Area Optometrists Partner With Sens. Harkin and Grassley; U.S. House Leaders in Improving Infant Eye and Vision Care
Date:3/18/2009

No-cost, comprehensive eye and vision assessments provided by InfantSEE(R) Program

DES MOINES, Iowa, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the overwhelming number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, Des Moines and surrounding area optometrists are devoting appointments to no-cost, comprehensive eye and vision assessments for infants between six to 12 months of age through InfantSEE(R). InfantSEE(R), a public health program developed by the American Optometric Association (AOA) in partnership with The Vision Care Institute(TM), LLC a Johnson & Johnson company, was designed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide at no-cost, regardless of family income or number of eligible children.

"InfantSEE(R) is doing much more than identifying and treating risk factors that may cause eye and vision problems later in the life," said Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA). "They are taking prevention to a new level to ensure healthier, thriving children and lower health care costs down the road."

"I hope Iowa parents take advantage of this free public service to have their babies screened for potential vision problems," said Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA). "Taking your children to see the doctor regularly promotes wellness and can help detect and prevent serious health issues."

Leading members of the U.S. House of Representatives delegation from Iowa have also expressed their support for the InfantSEE(R) program. Reps. Tom Latham (R-IA), Leonard Boswell (D-IA), Steve King (R-IA), Dave Loebsack (D-IA), and Bruce Braley (D-IA) urged local parents to have their infant's eyes assessed during InfantSEE(R) Week.

To encourage parents to take advantage of the InfantSEE(R) program and to help protect infant vision and eye health, Governor Chet Culver has officially declared Monday
