In brief: Soon

If there are no problems, the sight will develop as the brain develops in a steady pattern.
If you suspect a problem then see your pediatrician as soon as possible because many problems can be improved or eliminated if caught early.

In brief: 3-6 months

There is a big improvement in vision clarity between 3 and 6 months of age.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, the best thing is to show you for yourself. The following website was created by ophthalmologic researchers and illustrates the visual clarity that is expected at different ages. You can even upload your own photo to see what you look like to your baby: www.Tinyeyes.Com.

In brief: Around 8 months

Babies "learn" to see just like they learn to speak.
Their vision is initially best at about 8-10 inches and eye coordination is poor. Color distinction and depth perception grow over the first months as does the brain's ability to interpret visual signals. By around 8 months, their visual development is fairly well along.
