When our inventor and Co-Founder, Dr. Frank Werblin, set out to re-envision a solution for low vision (moderate to severe vision loss), who would have guessed we’d find ourselves here today? Having changed thousands of lives by enabling sight through science and technology, IrisVision is thrilled to be recognized by Fast Company as a World Changing Idea for 2020. As one of Fast Company’s major annual awards, the World Changing Ideas program is focused on social good, honoring companies seeking to elevate products and brave concepts that make the world better. We are honored by the external recognition, and proud to share the heart of this award is our driving purpose every day.
With this in mind, we want to take this opportunity to bring visibility to the millions of people faced with the daily challenges of living with low vision and let you know we’re not stopping here. At a time when many are feeling more isolated than ever, we are doubling down on our commitment to help people not just see, but reconnect and live more independently.
In honor of those for whom our technology has had a positive impact on their journey, we want to share some of the words we have received about how IrisVision has had a positive impact on their lives and simply say thank you for the opportunity to make a difference.
