Lissac has announced the death of Jean-Pierre Bonnac. He would have turned 80 in July. Bonnac was an emblematic figure of the French banner, which he joined when it was still run by Georges Lissac, and where he spent all his professional career. Bonnac invented one of the first electronic magnifiers, called “La vidéo loupe,” which enabled a large number of people to maintain their visual independence. He was also behind the development of children's and babies' eyewear, thanks to the realization of techniques and products that are still widely recognized today. He contributed to the teaching of optics in France for opticians, physicians and orthoptists. After retiring in 2000, he continued to teach.
