Although this news segment is from all the way across the country (California, in fact), I thought that it was a great story on the importance of infant visual care. Not only that, but it features an interview with a friend of mine, Dr. Carole Hong. :)
It is great to see infant vision exams getting more news coverage. As I frequently tell parents, it is much easier to prevent problems than to fix them. And we now know so much about visual development and have so many great techniques for examining the youngest of patients that we could virtually eliminate problems such as amblyopia "lazy eye" and strabismus "wondering eye." But we can't find these potential problems if the parents do not bring their little ones in for exams. That is why myself and other InfantSEE doctors donate their time to provide these exams at no cost.
One reason I love practicing in Westchase is that every day I see pregnant women, baby carriers, and strollers. If you have a baby, or know someone that does, be sure to find out more about InfantSEE!
