ONE IN FIVE CHILDREN IN GERMANY HAVE A VISUAL IMPAIRMENT
If it remains undiscovered, this can have a significant impact on a child’s development, ability to concentrate, and self-confidence. That is why we are committed to providing free eye tests in social institutions such as SOS Children's Villages, Die Arche or Haus Lebenshilfe. Where necessary, the children, adolescents and adults are given a free pair of corrective spectacles. In addition, we raise awareness for the importance of regular eye tests.
Healthy vision is essential. Rupp + Hubrach is involved in various social institutions for good vision of disadvantaged children and adults. Free screenings have been conducted since 2017 and the children receive free prescription spectacles if they need them.
