Children are screened in kindergarten at their school.<br></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. <br><br></p><p>Also known as the VCH Sensory Screening Program, Sunshine Coast.<br></p></div></div></div>494 South Fletcher Road300(604) 886-2250<div class="ExternalClassCA6473EE0EB1470097484A54C9392A50"><p>Monday - Friday</p><p>8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.</p></div>(604) 886-5615V0N 1V0BC49.4012843,-123.50841300000002<div class="ExternalClass6CDBF733A27447968C665B1689A17E15"><div><p>Age range: 5 years old</p></div></div>Gibsons Health Unit
