The InfantSEE Program recommends that everyone get their baby’s eyes checked for the first time at 6 months old. The exam is free of charge, no matter the insurance situation. Parents simply need to mention the exam is for InfantSEE when they schedule an appointment. There is no paperwork needed for parents. You can find more information at www.infantsee.org.
Dr. Gootee’s office can perform eye exams for kids of any age. They have the equipment and training to check the eyes no matter the child’s situation.
