Vision and Hearing

Vision and Hearing screenings are performed for school age children three and older. The main goal of the vision

and hearing program is early detection of vision and hearing problems in children. Certified technicians provide the

vision and hearing screenings at schools and preschools. Screenings are also done once a month at the Health

Department by appointment. The vision screenings are not meant as a substitute for a professional examination by

an eye doctor, as the Will County Health Department does not have an optometrist on staff.
