Kevin White spent 20 years in the Marines. In 2004, he was stationed at the European Command (EUCOM) as the humanitarian assistance program manager. He witnessed efforts to provide eyeglasses to people who needed them. The process was cumbersome and inefficient. For the past 15 years, White has been working to develop a better process for helping people who can’t afford glasses to get them. He has invented a revolutionary process for diagnosing the lenses people need and preparing them on-the-spot for a price of $5. The system relies on volunteers who receive three hours of training and are then prepared to help people diagnose themselves and build them a pair of glasses almost instantly. The system works well when organizations who are already making humanitarian efforts add the system to their efforts. Never miss another interview! Join Devin here:
