PARIS—Award-winning design consultancy, Teams Design, has won Essilor’s See Change Challenge, which was launched to find innovative solutions to facilitate access to vision care. Teams Design developed an easy-to-use, low cost, scalable solution called “QuickCheck” that can enable primary vision care providers in underserved areas to screen and detect refractive errors.

Essilor
and Teams Design will partner to pilot Quick Check in base of the pyramid populations in countries where Essilor has successfully established inclusive business models. The objective of the pilot is to create access to vision correction and protection, in particular in rural areas without conventional distribution channels.

“Wherever you live on this planet, everyone deserves access to vision correction and protection and innovation has always been central to driving our mission to improve lives by improving sight. The See Change Challenge has helped Essilor widen our field of exploration to ensure we meet the vision needs of the 7.4 billion people in the world,” said Hubert Sagnieres, chairman and CEO, Essilor International.
