Children are screened in kindergarten at their school.</p><h2>What happens during vision screening?</h2><p>The child's vision in each eye will be measured by a hand held vision screener that the child looks at. Depth perception is checked using a matching game that the child plays with the screener wearing special glasses. After screening, children who require follow-up are encouraged to visit an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Children do not need to be able to read to be screened. </p></div>5000 Joyce Avenue3rd floor(604) 485-3305<div class="ExternalClass06433F3C054F4DCFB2E7A4CF2EDF50A6"><p>Monday - Friday</p><p>8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.</p><br></div>(604) 485-3310V8A 5R3BC49.8522365,-124.51934990000001<div class="ExternalClass83B3B933734C4289A50AD46798158072"><p>Serves residents of Powell River and Regional Districts.<br></p></div>Powell River Community Health Centre
