This paper reviews the general stages of infant vision development with specific emphasis on the environmental factors affecting the emergence of the basic vision functions (visual acuity, pursuits, saccades, binocularity, and visual perception). Vision guidance and optometric vision therapy activities are explained and demonstrated to educate and guide parents in playful interactions with their child. The activities are suited for the infant from birth to age three. The aim is to prevent vision abnormalities from developing by providing a comprehensive program of movement oriented vision stimulation.
