From birth, babies begin exploring the wonders in the world with their eyes. Even before they learn to reach and grab with their hands or crawl and sit-up, their eyes are providing information and stimulation important for their development. Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision problems in infants can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect conditions early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn.
Drs. Destin and Devin Whipple are both members of the InfantSEE program, which promotes free comprehensive eye exams to infants between the age of 6-12 months old. So, schedule an appointment today for your child!
