St. Louis Metro Area Optometrists Partner With Sen. Bond; U.S. House Leaders in Improving Infant Eye and Vision Care
Date:6/1/2009

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

ST. LOUIS, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the overwhelming number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, St. Louis Metro 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 Optometry's Charity(TM) - The AOA Foundation 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.

"Unfortunately I know all too well just how important early identification is since a condition that went undiagnosed when I was a child has led to permanent vision loss in my right eye," said U.S. Senator Kit Bond (R-Mo.). "Through their work with the InfantSEE(R) program, Missouri's optometrists are an important part of the solution to helping children across the state avoid conditions like mine. This year I was proud to reintroduce with Senator Dodd the 'Vision Care for Kids Act' to combat undiagnosed and untreated vision problems in children. Support by Missouri's optometrists has been critical and I will continue to work with the vision community to bring attention to this important issue."

Leading members of the U.S. House of Representatives delegation from Missouri have also expressed their support for the InfantSEE(R) program. Reps. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) and Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) 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, Mayor Franci
