Children’s Vision

Vision is arguably one of the most important of the five senses, as it plays a crucial role throughout childhood and beyond. Yet many parents don't understand how vision helps their children develop appropriately.  Read more about the following programs and topics to learn more about how Wright Vision Care approaches children’s vision health.

InfantSEE Program

Wright Vision Care is a proud member of the InfantSEE program, which is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life. As a part of this program, WVC optometrists provide comprehensive eye and vision assessments for infants within the first year of life, regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage.
