West Virginia Optometrists Partner With Sens. Byrd and Rockefeller, U.S. House Leaders in Improving Infant Eye and Vision Care

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

CHARLESTON, W.Va., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the overwhelming number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, West Virginia 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.

The InfantSEE(R) Weeks project is funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by a direct appropriation sponsored by U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.).

Byrd championed the InfantSEE(R) program after learning of the overwhelming number of children with eye and vision problems in the Mountain State and across America.

"Many parents of newborns do not know that the most dramatic development of a child's visual system occurs within the first year of life," said Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.). "And it is through early detection and treatment of potential problems that parents can help ensure poor vision and eye health does not severely affect their child's ability to learn and place them at a disadvantage in education and in life. That is why I have put my full support behind the InfantSEE(R) program and worked to secure federal resources to help our Mountain State optometrists, and their colleagues around the country, expand the scope and impact of this great program. I encourage all parents to take advantage of the InfantSEE(R) program and to make a lifetime of eye and vision health a top
