About us

"Our mission is to end preventable blindness on a global scale"
We care deeply about preventing blindness.
Visual impairment and blindness is a global problem, with 285 million people globally suffering from this condition and 80% of those cases being preventable or treatable.

It is unfortunate that a 90% of those cases are found in developing areas.

Therefore the need arose to revolutionise eye health by building usable, accessible and affordable devices.
In 2014 Dr. Hong Sheng Chiong and Dr. Benjamin O'Keeffe, set up oDocs Eye Care, a revolutionary company in the field of portable eye care.

oDocs Eye Care is now an innovative, award-winning medical technology social enterprise with a mission to save the sight of one million people by 2030.

The company aims to develop a series of affordable ophthalmic diagnostic tools including retinal camera and OCT scanning machines. We have committed to using part of our net profit toward saving sight in the regions where it is needed most.
