Baby sees parents clearly for first time Optometrists underscore the importance of infant and early childhood eye exams

But to optometrists who know the importance of eye exams conducted on very young children, Piper's response isn't unfamiliar.

What hasn't happened before is having his patient's response take off quite like this. To find an InfantSee provider in Louisiana, click here.
