eye chart on wall and children without glasses

More than 2 billion people in the world today need glasses but don't have them.

100 million school-aged children cannot read the blackboard in class.

Workers are less productive.

Drivers are less safe on the roads.

The problem is that they do not have access to an eye care professional or special equipment to find their prescription.

This is one of the largest unaddressed health problems in the world today.

But we have a solution.

child adjusts power of lens

We use glasses with lenses that change shape so that the wearer can adjust the power of each lens until he or she can see clearly.

In clinical trials, 95% of young people who were short-sighted were able to see clearly after adjusting a pair of our adaptive spectacles.

A teacher was able to supervise this process after two hours' training.

The self-refraction approach is scalable and effective.

Over 100,000 people in 30 countries now wear adaptive spectacles.
