There are an estimated 2.5 billion people in low-resource parts of the world living with poor vision due to the lack of access to vision screening and eyeglasses. Poor vision effects every aspect of one’s life: educational opportunities, safety, employment, quality of life. Living with poor vision is unthinkable in a developed nation. This inequality negatively impacts the individuals who suffer the consequences of poor vision, the nations in which they live, and the world as a whole.
We have developed an extremely easy to use kit that simplifies every step of the eye glasses delivery process. From determination of a patient’s prescription, to the assembly of stylish, durable, and ISO certified pair of custom eyeglasses, everything has been designed to streamline the process and lower the educational requirements to less than a day of training. The heart of the kit is the USee screening tool. This tool allows anyone, anywhere, to deliver eyeglasses to everyone, everywhere.
