Vancouver Coastal Health screens Kindergarten children in three areas:
1. Vision - Children are screened for possible visual defects. They do not
diagnose vision disorders, but rather identify potential problems that need to
be further examined by an optometrist.
2. Hearing - The Mobile Hearing Clinic screens for hearing loss and for
medical conditions of the outer and middle ear.
3. Dental - Children are screened for possible oral problems that may need
further examination by a dentist.
