Jamie Zickefoose has been instrumental in bringing OneSight’s innovative technology systems to life. His determination and inventive outlook have helped foster a positive and high performing culture for his entire team. As a member of the IT team, Jamie works with team members across the globe supporting and creating efficiencies in OneSight’s charitable and sustainable vision care programming models. He consistently works behind the scenes to ensure OneSight has the security and stability needed to provide eye exams and glasses to those who lack access globally.
In 2021, Jamie led the set-up, implementation, and training approach for a new point of care system that OneSight launched in The Gambia. The system is an integral part of taking manual processes and transitioning them into electronic records that integrate with our partner’s hospital system. This tool may serve as a model for programming in other countries as OneSight continues to scale its sustainable vision centers globally.
Jamie has also contributed to enhancements in our charitable programming by serving as a hands-on technical leader at numerous vision clinics. Jamie has advanced OneSight’s technical processes through the use of digital visual acuity charts and wireless registration. He also ensures that OneSight’s vision vehicle fleet is set up technically to support our traveling vehicles that host quality eye exams and manufacturing.
OneSight often provides vision care in highly remote places and Jamie provides innovative technology solutions for these unique scenarios. Through testing connectivity with key partners, he ensures OneSight’s work can be completed in these areas successfully.

“Working for OneSight has allowed me to push my limits in the world of technology all while helping communities around the globe. I’m continuously driven by witnessing the end results that we are able to provide. The patients, the partners, and the staff that I have been fortunate enough to meet and work with through the past couple years have truly changed the way I look at the world and what we do. Together, we are doing work that leads to more productive members in society and offers them happiness they weren’t able to see before.”
