Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

4 Ways to Help Your Baby’s Visual Development

  • Schedule baby’s first eye exam

    Our InfantSEE eye care professionals recommend that your baby’s first exam be scheduled around the time they are 6 months old.

  • Stimulate vision through play

    Interact with your baby by playing visually interesting and stimulating games with colorful toys and moving objects.

  • Encourage exploration

    Help your child explore their world. Encourage crawling, playing in a sandbox, reaching for and holding different toys and objects in their surroundings.

  • Watch for missed milestones

    If your child’s development seems to be unusually slow, speak to your eye doctor to see whether their vision may be part of the issue. Timely treatment may prevent future complications.

Our eye care professionals in Centennial know exactly what to look for to ensure that your child’s vision is at its best. We at EyeCare Consultants are dedicated to helping them experience all the beautiful sights the world has to offer.

  • First, a few questions…
    Your baby’s first eye exam will start with the eye doctor asking you a few questions to learn about your baby’s personal and family health history. Was the baby born prematurely? Is there a history in the family of eye conditions such as astigmatism, myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness)? This information will help your optometrist know what things to look out for during the exam. 
  • Checking your baby’s vision
    Your baby’s eye doctor may choose to dilate their pupils to get a better look at the back of their eyes for signs of eye disease. They will also check for refractive errors and early signs of infection or malformation in the eye, evaluate your baby’s eyes for coordination, and rule-out conditions such as strabismus (crossed-eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye).
  • Vision Correction and Treatment
    If your little one is found to have a refractive error such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, special eyeglasses for infants will be prescribed. Your eye doctor will likely ask you to bring your baby in for further evaluation if they find indications of certain eye diseases or conditions that require treatment.

Common Glaucoma Treatments

baby under purple blanket

There is currently no cure for glaucoma. However, several treatments are available to prevent the progression of this sight-robbing condition. With the right care, you have a higher chance of managing your glaucoma and preserving your vision.

Common treatments include:

Eye Drops

Your optometrist will prescribe eye drops to help regulate pressure inside the eye by decreasing fluid production and/or improving drainage.

Laser Surgery

If eye drops aren’t doing enough to reduce intraocular pressure or IOT in open-angle glaucoma, laser surgery may be an option. Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) opens up the drainage system in the eye to reduce pressure.

SLT is successful in 80% of cases and can reduce eye pressure by 20%.

Other Surgeries

If a laser procedure or eye drops do not lower eye pressure to the desired level, your eye doctor may recommend one of the following surgeries:

  • Incision Surgery
  • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Glaucoma Drainage Implants

was able to get in next day over lunch - one item i didn't like was appointment was 1:30pm, I got th... ere at 1:25 and door was locked. I get you're on lunch, but let me sit in the waiting room in the A/C. Liked an electronic medical history, easy to look up medicines for my history and other stuff (never seen that anywhere before). Enjoyed a $45 option to use a machine instead of having to dilate my eyes and go back to work - worth it. No pressure to buy glasses in the attached store - just paid and went back to work. kinda crazy I've worked nearby for 4 years and never gone because was skeptical of going to a new eye doctor- in and out in about an hour with a full medical eye exam, glasses and contacts, and i asked lots of questions. probably ideal to do the first appointment of the day or after lunch.

InfantSEE® FAQs

What is InfantSEE?

InfantSEE is a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares - The AOA Foundation. Its purpose is to make sure that family income and access to insurance coverage do not become obstacles to making eye and vision care an essential part of infant wellness. To that end, AOA member optometrists who are part of the InfantSEE program provide a no-cost comprehensive eye and vision assessment to all infants 6-12 months old.

When should a baby have an eye test?

Within 6-12 months of age. A child’s visual development is most rapid and pronounced within the first year of life and is the period when the foundations of vision and visual skills are laid. If these foundations are undermined by vision conditions, eye diseases or refractive errors, it can have far-reaching consequences for the rest of your child’s life. Thanks to the InfantSEE program, pediatric eye doctors can detect and treat these conditions, to ensure that your child’s vision starts off right.

What‘s the difference between vision screening and a comprehensive eye exam?

The aim of these screenings is to assess visual acuity (whether you have 20/20 vision), and are not meant to detect eye disease and other visual issues that would be found as part of a comprehensive eye exam with your local pediatric eye doctor. As a result, eye diseases such as cataracts or conditions such as amblyopia or strabismus are likely to go undetected, causing more severe damage the longer they go without treatment.
