Both Dr. Zilnicki & Dr. Licausi are InfantSEE providers. Under this program participating optometrists provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service.
The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months of age, even if there are no apparent concerns. Dr.s’ Licausi and Zilnicki will test for high or uneven refractive error, eye movement ability and any other eye health issues.
Although these issues are not common, it is imperative to identify children with the above conditions as young as possible. Early intervention is the key to treatment!
