European Coalition for Vision Manifesto Launch

European Parliament, Strasbourg, 4th of February

European Coalition for Vision Manifesto Launch
Topcon proudly assisted the European Coalition for Vision (ECV) to increase the awareness among members of the European Parliament of the importance of regular eye examinations and thus preventing visual impairment

To illustrate the health benefits of eye examinations, retinal photographs and OCT images were taken from a large number of Members of the European Parliament, advisors and staff, with each attendee given an explanation of their retinal image. The stand was busy throughout and there was a real interest amongst European policy-makers for additional information about eye health and what they could do to help

European Coalition for Vision
The European Coalition for Vision is an alliance made up of professional bodies, patient groups, European NGOs, disabled people’s organisations and trade associations representing suppliers.  The coalition exists to raise the profile of eye health and vision, help prevent avoidable visual impairment and secure an equal and inclusive society for those with irreversible blindness or low vision in Europe.
