Zero to pay for glasses

People needing glasses will be able to get a free pair from January 2020 with costs fully covered by state healthcare and their mutuelle insurance.

A new law (zéro reste à charge) means opticians must offer a range of lenses and frames at no cost. Some, such as Afflelou and Optic 2000, already offer low-cost options but all will offer free ranges soon.

The scheme, with cost limits for equipment, will also expand to  den­tal prosthetics in 2020 and  hearing aids in 2021.
