Context

In Taiwan, glaucoma and retinal macular degeneration are the two major causes of blindness. More than 320,000 people are affected by glaucoma with a growth of 72% in the last decade. For these two conditions, early detection could, in most cases, eliminate the risk of blindness. 

 

Supported project

L'OCCITANE Taïwan and the Foundation support the Light of Love association for its project to promote eye health for local communities in Taiwan. Free screenings will be organized in order to detect as soon as possible the potential pathologies from which the populations suffer. In addition, educational events will be organized with the aim of highlighting the importance of eye health and raising awareness of the first do-it-yourself eye screening procedures, particularly to detect glaucoma and retinal macular degeneration.
