"What does my baby see?" This question comes to mind the moment a baby's eyes first open. Can she see my face? Can he tell if I am smiling? What about colors? As it happens, scientists have devoted years learning about how the eye and brain develop and conducted hundreds of studies learning how babies discern clarity, color, and contrast. REBIScan and Boston Children’s Hospital's Chief of Ophthalmology, David G. Hunter, MD, PhD, have worked with a scientific and engineering team to create the BabySee infant vision simulator to bring the science of visual development in infants to life in real time.
BabySee is an educational app that will allow you to see the world through your child's eyes and inform you of tests your child’s doctor is advised to perform during well child visits. This app is the first of a pipeline of tools being developed by REBIScan to improve lives from infancy thru adulthood.
BabySee has the following functions:
-Enter and save your child’s name and date of birth
-Real-time video image simulates visual clarity, color, and contrast at given age
-Use front or back camera on your device
-Touch and hold your device screen to compare infant vision with normal adult vision
-A slider to show vision at different ages
-Save snapshots to your BabySee album
-Share favorite images via email, text, and social media
-Learn official recommendations about what pediatricians are supposed to test at your child’s next scheduled visit
-Page through the BabySee album as your child grows to review changes in normal vision over time
-Store images for more than one child in your BabySee album
-Link to scientific articles to learn more about how infant vision develops and is tested

Why does it stop at 1 week old?
Super cool, except that once my baby hit 7 days old, it stopped working. She's now 11 days old and it still stuck on 1 week even after deleting and re-installing.
