Eyeglass prescriptions at the push of a button
Plenoptika (f.k.a. Team Eye) is developing an affordable and accurate device, the “QuickSee,” to prescribe eyeglasses at the push of a button. The goal of the QuickSee is to increase accessibility to eye care in low-resource settings.[/vc_column][vc_column fade=”” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” inner_container=”” no_margin=”” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none” marginless_columns=”” el_id=””][vc_column fade=”” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″]

Team Eye received US$11,000 as travel funds to visit India, where they have started a collaboration with Soura Bhattacharyya, Chief of Medical Technologies at Glocal Healthcare.
Team Eye’s collaboration with Bhattacharyya began four months ago when he visited the research group at RLE Cambridge. Searching for technologies that could impact Glocal’s mission “to create a Healthcare Delivery System that is universally available, acceptable, and affordable,” Bhattacharyya found Team Eye. Glocal hospitals often cater to low-income patients from rural areas, while operating with evidence-based medicine, stringent transparency, and high quality. They currently operate five hospitals in the state of West Bengal in India.
“Our goal is to meet potential stakeholders in India and explore how our device could positively impact eye care in India,” said Daryl Lim, the 2011 Fellow who started Team Eye. “By visiting and forging relationships with various eye care providers, we also hope to learn what will be needed in order to incorporate our technology into their operations.”
Team Eye was recognized in two international business plan competitions, the 2012 MIT $100K Business Plan Competition and the 2012 Mass Challenge.
