The Allergan Foundation is marking the halfway point of a $1 million grant disbursed over four years to support InfantSEE, a public health program developed by Optometry Cares – the AOA Foundation to provide free professional eye care for infants nationwide. Through InfantSEE, optometrists provide a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year of life, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of socioeconomic status. The Allergan Foundation’s grant helps to support the recruitment of young optometrists as InfantSEE providers and the operation and administration of the program with schools and colleges of optometry.
The Allergan Foundation supports InfantSEE as part of its commitment to assist organizations that improve patient diagnosis, treatment, care, and quality of life, or to otherwise promote access to quality health care. To learn more about the InfantSEE program, visit www.infantsee.org.
