Global Vision 2020 (GV2020) is a US based non-profit dedicated to helping eliminate uncorrected refractive error (URE) in low resource nations using portable Vision Kits. The core component of the kit is our refraction/screening tool the USee, a glasses-like device with graded lens bars used to determine a prescription while viewing a standard eye chart. We provide the simplest, most accurate, portable system that provides a pair of ISO certified prescription eyeglasses with the least amount of education/training needed to provide refractive assistance to the customer. Our work has spanned three continents and over 20 nations since 2015. With simple training, any network can become effective at solving refractive error, and referring patients with other pathologies to eye health networks.
“Our membership with IAPB has been exceptionally helpful in building our network with like-minded organizations dedicated to global eye health. The inclusion of proven subjective refractive technologies adds one more tool in the toolbox that expands the global efforts to reach the Base of the Pyramid.” Executive Director, J. Kevin White
