Mississippi optometrists are providing free check-ups for children between 6 and 12-moths-old as part of InfantSee, a statewide project designed to ensure children’s vision problems are detected early.
“The most critical stages of vision develop in a child’s first year of life, and undetected eye and vision problems can lead to permanent vision impairment, loss of life or a decrease in a child’s quality of life,” said Governor Barber. “I encourage the citizens of Mississippi to participate in InfantSEE Week by scheduling a comprehensive eye and vision assessment for their infants.”
Barbour’s support of the program is so strong that he declared September 24 through October 1, 2011 InfantSEE Week in Mississippi.
Here’s the name and address of an Oxford optometrist who's participating in InfantSEE:
