New Health Center in Paris

A long term partnership between the Adolphe de Rothschild Foundation and Vision for Life, Essilor’s social impact fund, has been launched in Paris to ensure the vision health of communities in acute need.
The Foundation opened the Edmond de Rothschild ophthalmic center, the first of its kind in France that’s open to all. It aims to treat 45,000 patients a year, including individuals living in extreme precariousness, who will be able to come to the Foundation’s ophthalmology center two mornings a week and over 4 weekends in the year for an ophthalmic consultation, treatment and glasses to correct their vision.
The initiative hopes to bring vision care to some 4,000 individuals in need, annually.
