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>8100 Granville Avenue(604) 233-3198<div class="ExternalClassCD038214E3024A9C86D54B9640C52618"><div></div><div><p>Monday - Friday </p><p>8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.</p></div></div>(604) 233-3150V6Y 3T6BC<div class="ExternalClassEA49BE26EB2D40DB85F475523D132645"><p><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#1f497d;">Limited on-site paid parking available.
