We are thrilled to share that easee, has been recognized with the prestigious Rabobank Sustainable Innovation Award 2023, one of the world’s largest banks. Our groundbreaking online eye exam was recognised for its efforts in myopia (short-sightedness) challenge, offering affordable, high-quality eye care to everyone, everywhere.
The number of people who are short-sighted are extremely high and continue to rise across the globe. More and more children and adults are in need of eye tests and glasses to correct their myopia. In this vast changing world, our lifestyles are changing, especially the younger generations, with more and more children spending longer hours on screen time. This leads to extensive pressure on the healthcare system. Without raising awareness and radical change, huge numbers of people will become visually impaired.
This is the time that eye tests need to be revolutionized across the eye care industry to enable everyone, everywhere, to have an eye test.
