Seattle and Tacoma-Area Optometrists Partner With Sen. Murray in Improving Infant Eye and Vision Care
Date:5/5/2009

n that the first year of life is one of the most critical stages of a child's visual development," said Dr. Karen Preston, a Seattle-area optometrist and InfantSEE(R) provider. "It's the ideal time to detect eye and vision problems before these conditions worsen or cause developmental delays."

The program launched in 2005 with support from former President Jimmy Carter, honorary national chair. Nearly 8,000 optometrists nationwide volunteer their time to provide assessments to babies in their communities. The majority of vision problems detected included retinoblastoma (eye cancer), severe hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), congenital glaucoma and congenital cataract.

"As a parent, one of my biggest responsibilities is making sure my children's development is on track", said Sam Ames, local mother of Zach, age 7 and Trevor, age 4. "When I learned about the InfantSEE(R) program in 2005, it was the obvious decision to take Trevor for an assessment. Knowing his vision is healthy gives me peace of mind that he is seeing his world correctly and that I am making a beneficial health decision for my child."

To continue to improve infant eye assessment rates in the Seattle and Tacoma-area, the following eye care providers will offer no-cost InfantSEE(R) eye assessments from May 11 to 15, by appointment:
