I wanted to share with anyone that might be from Missouri, there is a free program in MO for infants to have their eyes examed more in depth than your pediatrician's office. Go to www.infantsee.org to learn more!

Thanks kay-kay! Great information!

My 6 year old has been telling me things are "blearrry" vs blurry. I guess I am calling to schedule an exam.
