Historically, Monteclair is a specialized organization to support children between 0 and 20 with vision impairment in school in mainstream, in daily life, by mobility and daily living skills, technical aids and adapted documentation, low vision support and psychological support.

VYV3 Pays de la Loire has since developed many services with the competencies of professionals for children, to respond to the needs of all people with vision impairment, in daily life, in vocational and professional activities, but also as regards the increasing number of ageing people, and more generally in the field of rehabilitation. Whatever the age, VYV3 Pays de la Loire services in vision impairment aim to ensure the autonomy and the quality of life of people with vision impairment.

Monteclair support about 100 children each year, services for adults support more than 400 people.
