InfantSee™, is a no-cost public health program developed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide. It is being provided by American Optometric Association (AOA) member doctors, in partnership with The Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. Under this program, supported by former President Jimmy Carter, who serves as honorary national chair and spokesman, participating optometrists will provide a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year of life, offering early detection of risk factors that might lead to potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income.

Children known to have eye or vision problems or children older than one year can obtain comprehensive examination and treatment in the Pediatrics and Binocular Vision Service.
