Columbia, SC ( WLTX) -- The CDC says 1 in 6 children are at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems.
That's why the United way is teaming up with InfantSEE to provide free screenings to try and change that statistic.
The screenings are for infants who are six to twelve months of age.
Early detection of vision problems is the best way to treat and prevent permanent vision impairment.
All parents may schedule their child's free assessment directly with a provider year-round.
A list of participating providers can be found by clicking on the InfantSEE website.
