We talk to Sydney-based eye surgeon Dr Sarah Crowe, Founder and Director of 4eyesVision who has invented the 4eyesVision Kit to correct refractive error, the leading cause of blindness in the developing world and provide affordable glasses on the spot for people in remote and developing communities. Dr Crowe shares her clinician entrepreneur story that started in the Solomon Islands and progressed with the help of the Kokoda Track Foundation. She took her innovation through the 2020 Australian Technologies Competition winning the Global Social Impact Division, and the Health 10x Accelerator program winning a 2022 UNSW Founders Award. Having dispensed 1,000 pairs of glasses already, Dr Crowe is now focused on securing funding to scale up the organisation and commercialise the kit.
