This project is supported by the Japanese subsidiary of L'OCCITANE en Provence.


In Japan, the system of vision screening for neonates and infants is defaulting because of the lack of collaboration between neonatologists, pediatricians, ophtalmologists and educators. While 85% of pediatric visual deficit caused by ocular anomalies occures within the 1st year after birth, detection and treatment of these severe eye diseases are often delayed, and special education for children with visual impairment is insufficient.


Supported Project

In 2022-2023, L'OCCITANE Japan supports the extansion of eye care project of the Japanese Association of Pediatric Ophtalmology (JAPO). 
This project aims to raise awareness of the detection, treatment and care of eye defects in young children so that their development can be facilitated despite their visual impairment. By creating a link between families and medical teams, the aim is to encourage their collaboration through awareness courses and educational workshops.
