"It changes everything, a pair of glasses"

This quote from a precarious person sums up what an optical device can do: change a life!

It is, so to speak, this creed that was created VisionSoliDev : Vision Solidarity Development. This association works to facilitate access to vision health and glasses, in France and internationally. His team is composed mainly of ophthalmologists, optometrists, volunteer opticians, and other professionals and students of vision.

Since its creation in 2011, more than 3500 adults and children in precarious or disabled situations have had access to visual health and have seen their quality of life improve.

However, while VisionSoliDev has the support of many partners, there is never enough, so much remains to be done! Do not hesitate to contact them and follow their actions on Facebook and Twitter .
