Even newborns are able to see - but they are not immediately able to see with the degree of clarity, depth perception, etc. that adults see. Right away babies can see large, bright objects, and they can see pretty well at a very close distance (e.g., 8-12 inches). Gradually they are able to focus better and, by about the and of one and one-half months, babies can focus up to about two feet or so. They do not have depth perception at that age. Gradually their vision develops, and they can see quite well by the time they are six months of age. So it's a gradual process.  Why are you wondering about this?
