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></p></div>999 West Broadway<div class="ExternalClass5C127484BF48482ABE998AA31EBA9999"><div><div>Monday - Friday</div><div>8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.</div></div></div>(604) 654-2640V5Z 1K5BC<div class="ExternalClass33EEECBE796F4A4096ACDC93341313C3"><p>Pay parking is available. </p></div>49.2636512,-123.12616170000001<div class="ExternalClass367E6B9991C444D987FBBD9BDBCA5434"><div><p>​Age range: 5 years old</p></div></div>3rd floorVancouver Community Audiology Centre
