Seva Foundation Partners with IrisVision to Democratize Vision Care Through Innovation

Seva grant of $200,000 will help develop IrisVision and deliver life-changing eye healthcare to underserved communities.




(PRESS RELEASE) PLEASANTON, CA – IrisVision, the leader in digital vision technologies, today announced it has partnered with the Seva Foundation to develop new technology that will democratize vision healthcare around the world.

Seva Foundation is a global non-profit organization that provides eye care services to underserved communities across the globe. Since 1978, Seva has provided sight-saving surgeries, medicine and other eye care services to more than 40 million people globally.

In the first phase of this unique public-private partnership, Seva will provide IrisVision with a grant of $200,000 to help create new technologies to treat vision impairment, and even prevent blindness, in less privileged parts of our world. IrisVision, which is best known as the creator of an award-winning VR solution that restores sight for those with vision impairments and is currently developing new telehealth applications for its vision care platform, will contribute its extensive R&D talent, leadership and resources to the initiative.

“This partnership with IrisVision will help Seva to continue delivering cutting-edge science and technology in eye health and vision care to the world’s underserved communities,” said Seva Executive Director Kate Moynihan. “One of our key tenets has been to continue investing in technology that advances eye care for affected and at-risk communities, wherever they may be. When we saw the ground-breaking work IrisVision is already doing in low vision aids, virtual vision diagnostics and remote delivery of eye care, we knew they have the scientific, technical and leadership talent to take our work even further.”

According to IrisVision CEO and Co-founder Ammad Khan, “Partnering with such a respected and prestigious organization as the Seva Foundation is an honor. They have established the pathways over their 40 years of hard work to restore sight to more than five million people in communities across the globe. In turn, our technology can help these communities regain the life-changing gift of sight. Together, we can truly make a difference in the world.”
