There are an estimated 4.2 billion people around the world that need eye glasses. 2.5 billion people don't have access to them.

This is tragic. We're working to change this.

The patient, with the assistance of the trained local technician, creates a profile so their information can be saved and a prescription can be issued.
The patient then undergoes a basic eye test, A.K.A "Visual Acuity Test," to determine the smallest letters they can read from a standardized chart. If you've been to an optometrist's office, you should be familiar with this. This test is done for each eye.
The patient uses our auto-refractor device to test for the extent that their eyes need to be corrected with a prescription.
The optometrist explains the situation and answers any questions the patient may have.
The prescription is finalized after consulting with the optometrist. The glasses with prescription lenses are then made and delivered on the spot.
It's as simple as that. With these 7 steps, we're working to help billions of people across the globe to see the world more clearly.
