The Spanish Federation of Optical Sector Associations (FEDAO) and the public-utility association Visión y Vida have released the Covid-19 edition of its White Book of Vision 2021 (Libro Blanco de la Visión 2021), reviewing the state of eyecare in Spain. It asserts, citing Spain’s National Institute of Statistics (INE), that 20.7 percent of the country’s population lives on the verge of poverty and about 63 percent of these 9.7 million people need glasses or contact lenses in everyday life but may struggle to acquire them. In other words, some 6.1 million are said to suffer from “visual poverty.” The white book recommends therefore that the Spanish government provide for each person in this category a subsidy of €100, or half the cost of a pair of glasses or year’s supply of contact lenses.
