Madison-Area Optometrists Partner With Senator Kohl in Improving Infant Eye and Vision Care
Date:1/22/2009

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

MADISON, Wis., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the overwhelming number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, Madison and surrounding area optometrists are devoting appointments to no-cost, comprehensive eye and vision assessments for babies 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 of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., was designed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide at no-cost, regardless of family income or number of eligible children.

"I have always been a big proponent of programs that deliver the health care and nutritional services children require in order to get a strong start in life," said U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.). "I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the InfantSEE(R) program, which will be providing no-cost comprehensive vision assessments to infants in southern Wisconsin. These screenings will go a long way toward getting these young children the vision care they need."

To encourage local parents to take advantage of the InfantSEE(R) program and to help protect infant vision and eye health, Governor Jim Doyle has officially declared Monday, January 26 through Friday, January 30 InfantSEE(R) Week in Southern Central Wisconsin.

"I am proud to proclaim InfantSEE(R) Week as part of Wisconsin's commitment to children's health and wellness," said Gov. Jim Doyle. "I encourage parents to take advantage of this public health program to help protect their infants' vision and eye health."

One in 10 children are at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems, which, if undetected, could lead to permanent vision impairment, and in rare cases, life-threatening health risks
