Testimonials – InfantSEE
Ryan Powell, O.D. (MO)
InfantSEE and Children’s Vision, Past Committee Member
and Provider since 2005
“I became an InfantSEE provider in 2005. I now speak to a moms group twice a year about InfantSEE, I’ve gotten on the local news and even on some TV shows and radio shows letting people know about InfantSEE. I now have a Pediatrician group, Parents as Teachers, and many families that know our practice as the place for a lifetime of eyecare. Many of the moms and dads have even become our patients as a result.”

InfantSEE has had such a positive impact on my patients, community, and practice. What an excellent opportunity to educate the public about the importance of eye care not only for infants but for the whole family. By stressing eye care starting in infancy, we are able to foster a lifetime of eye care for all involved. The assumption is that “If an infant needs an eye exam, I do too.” Education is the key to healthy eyes, and InfantSEE is the perfect tool to accomplish this.
Jennie Smith Zolman, O.D. (SC)
“InfantSEE is hands down one of the best patient education tools in optometry today. I became an InfantSEE provider right out of optometry school and really used it as a tool to educate my community and bring new patients into the practice that I had joined. I promoted using the materials provided by AOA to my local pediatricians, mom groups, our current patient base and hospitals. It is amazing to me that so many parents have no idea that babies and young children need to have their eyes examined. With InfantSEE you have the parents right there in front of you and it is the perfect opportunity to educate them about the importance of comprehensive eye exams for their children every year. InfantSEE is good for our communities, good for our patients and good for our practices. I love that some of my first patients I ever saw are now my pre-teens that I see every year…. along with the other members of their families!”

The InfantSEE program makes all of us better doctors. Why?
- Because InfantSEE is about educating the public on the role of the Optometrist in the eye and vision care for our children.
- Because InfantSEE is about ensuring the optimal conditions for children’s visual development.
- Because InfantSEE is about bringing together Optometrists in serving our young children.
- Because InfantSEE is about saving lives.
- Because InfantSEE is about Optometrists providing better eye care to our children.
I’ve been an InfantSEE provider since the program’s inception, assisted in the integration of InfantSEE care into the educational programs at optometry schools for faculty and students, and have seen first-hand the value this program brings to the communities that I serve, and towards the education of our future doctors.
