Ocutech, Inc., the developer of state-of-the-art bioptic telescopes for the visually impaired, announces that the Low Vision Service at Lissac Opticians- Rivoli, Paris, France, has become France’s first Authorized Ocutech Prescriber.
Established in 1936, Lissac Rivoli is one of Europe’s largest optical centers, with 6 floors and offering specialized services for children, adults, contact lenses and low vision care. Lissac’s Low Vision Service includes five opticians who specialize in helping visually impaired individuals of all ages to maximize the use of their vision– prescribing special filters, optical and electronic magnifiers for reading, for using the computer, as well as for many other activities. Telescopic low vision aids, like Ocutech’s innovative Bioptic Telescopes, enable individuals to see at a distance for school, work, travel, and in social settings. In most states in the US and in some European countries visually impaired individuals may even be eligible to receive a special driver’s license using an Ocutech bioptic telescope. Lissac’s Low Vision Service provides reports to their patient’s ophthalmologist to keep them updated on treatment plans and visual improvements.
