Poor vision the world’s number one disability. More than 2 billion people need corrective glasses but are unable to acquire them. In many countries, there are few eye care professionals capable of measuring vision and prescribing the appropriate strength lens. In an effort to improve access to eye care globally, Adaptive EyeWorks and Perspa, with the support of a Crossroads II subsidy, are working to develop the world’s simplest, lowest-cost, mobile refraction device.
