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>132 West Esplanade<div class="ExternalClass7260AE95F7EF479BA609021C5EBD3620"><div>Monday - Friday</div><div>8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.</div></div>(604) 654-2640V7M 1A2BC<div class="ExternalClass3E783F1AA68A4960AB526881340F13C8"><div>Elevator available.</div></div>49.3118258,-123.08040790000001<div class="ExternalClass804A29B937754721B6E27E82DC438E9F">Age range: 5 years old</div>Central Community Health Centre
