U.S. Senator Kit Bond Receives 2010 AOA Health Care Leadership Award
Date:3/9/2010

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.  Through their work with the InfantSEE® program, Missouri's optometrists are an important part of the solution to helping children across the state avoid conditions like mine," said Sen. Bond. "Last year I was also 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."
