This year, Optometry Cares® – The AOA Foundation honored Cara Frasco, O.D., from Ohio with the Dr. W. David Sullins, Jr. InfantSEE® Award. The award recognizes an individual doctor of optometry who has made significant contributions to optometry or his/her community for outstanding public service involving the InfantSEE® program.

Dr. Frasco’s nomination form said “She exhibits the very essence of the Sullins Award. In the area of InfantSEE® Leadership, she is the InfantSEE® coordinator for area and she is one of the leading optometrists in the country for electronic submission of InfantSEE® assessment reports. In the area of comprehensive care, she has highlighted the InfantSEE® program and receives referrals from the community, colleagues and local pediatricians for InfantSEE® assessments.”

Dr. Frasco practices in Springboro and Middletown. She received her optometry degree and a concurrent master’s degree in vision science degree from The Ohio State University College of Optometry in 2003.

She completed a residency in pediatric optometry at the University of Houston in 2004.

Children’s vision has been Dr. Frasco’s focus since she began practicing optometry. She became a volunteer when InfantSEE® started in 2005.

In 2012, Dr. Frasco provided 59 of Ohio’s 495 InfantSEE® reports submitted online.

Dr. Frasco and her husband, Nicky Lai, O.D., reside in Beavercreek, Ohio.

They have two children, Charlie, 4, and Andy, 1.
