Free Hearing and Vision Screening for Children

The Genesee County Health Department (GCHD) will be providing free hearing and vision screening clinics for children who are 3 -18 years of age and live in Genesee County.

Children enrolling in kindergarten must show that they have received the Michigan Department of Community Health vision screening or an eye examination by a doctor before starting school. The hearing and vision screenings are done by GCHD staff technicians that have been trained and evaluated by the Michigan Department of Community Health.

Children whose screenings indicate a need for further evaluation will be assisted with a referral to their doctor or resources for health insurance if needed. Although the hearing and vision clinics are a walk-in service, parents are encouraged to call for information about the best time to arrive.
