The caravan’s optical unit is one of those that receive the most patients during the medical caravan. This year, in addition to our title partner Atol Les Opticiens, Vinyl Factory contributed to the association by providing sunglasses to protect sensitive eyes.
Through their support, every day of the caravan, dozens of people receive effective protection against the sun.
Every year the optical unit is composed of two opticians and an ophthalmologist, often Moroccan, who facilitates communication between the opticians and the patients.
Thibaut and Audrey are part of the caravan every year. In addition, every year Thibaut, an employee of the optical unit’s main partner Atol Les Opticiens, is in charge of ensuring that the caravan has all the material it requires for its mission.
This mission is especially important when it comes to children: as the eyes continue to develop until the age of 6, if an optical defect is corrected early enough the eye can continue to develop and improve. This generally has a large impact on the child’s education.
Atol Les Opticiens is a very important partner for the medical caravan, and we send them a huge thank you for their commitment.
