InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares® – the AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life. Under this program, participating optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.
Volunteers In Service In Our Nation (VISION USA) is a program that provides basic eye health and vision services free of charge to low-income, uninsured individuals and their families. VISION USA is provided by participating AOA member optometrists who donate their services.
