Our InfantSEE program offers eye exams for infants aged 6 months - 2 years.

The eyes of an infant develop at an incredible rate. Although your baby receives screening tests at birth and in their first year, it’s very important during the early stages to see an optometrist and check for any infectious, congenital or hereditary eye diseases.


What is an InfantSEE exam?

Our eye exam checks for everything, from lazy and crossed eyes to farsightedness and nearsightedness. We also test for light reaction, eye alignment and general eye health, and can treat minor eye health problems, such as infections or blocked tear ducts. The examination lasts around 15 minutes and may seem brief, but it is invaluable to ensuring everything is on track for a lifetime of good vision. 

We work fast to make sure your baby’s first visit to OCULA is fun and stress-free. We provide activities, toys and an optometrist who is a specialist in infant’s eyecare and is genuinely passionate about their health. The exam is non-invasive, and babies can be in their prams or on your lap throughout. We work around you to find the best time in between napping and feeding, and can always reschedule if it’s not their day. Mothers are always welcome to breastfeed in our clinic.
