We live in a beautiful world, but not everyone can see it. 253 million people suffer from vision impairment and 36 million are blind or going blind. Yet, 80% of all vision impairment can now be prevented, treated or cured.
We have always admired the extraordinary force of character of our ancestor, Paul Chibret, a young military doctor and future ophthalmologist, who, in 1870, left his home town in France to relieve human suffering in Algeria, and more specifically fight against the disease trachoma.
