We believe that a pair of glasses is one of the most life-transforming products available, and we want them to be available to everyone. Sadly, hundreds of millions of people in the developing world live without the glasses they need because there's no optometrists to measure and provide prescription glasses. There had to be a better way to provide them.
We don't believe that developing world users should have to settle for lower quality glasses, and we don't believe the developed world should have to pay huge prices for their eyewear.
Developed in-house, our SlideLens technology is the heart of what we do, and provides the innovative core of our glasses worldwide. The incredible complexity of intensive optical calculations is distilled down to a simple result: turn the dial until you can see clearly.
David Crosby has a DPhil in Physics from the University of Oxford. Having previously devoted himself to experiments checking whether the fundamental laws of physics are correct (apparently they are... probably), David decided that he ought to do something useful before he became obsolete and so teamed up with Greg, Owen and Rich to start Eyejusters.
David develops the key parts of our SlideLens technology, and occasionally gets some time to sleep.
Greg Storey has a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Auckland in New Zealand. He has a background of medical product design and came across self adjustable glasses whilst travelling on a working holiday.
In his rapidly diminishing spare time Greg likes to lose himself in other countries and ski as often as he can, sometimes combining the two.
As well as all this, Greg is Cool.
Richard Taylor has a Manufacturing Systems Engineering degree and a PhD in Engineering from the University of Warwick. His PhD was an industrial collaborative project on retinal imaging, after which he became interested in self-adjustable glasses, blending engineering and his research interest in vision.
When not in the office, Richard enjoys cooking from various cuisines at home and volunteering in in the community.
Ethan Kay joined Eyejusters in early 2013, and will be assisting us in bringing our glasses to base of the pyramid markets around the world. Ethan has worked extensively for Sakhi Retail in India, helping them set up their retail channel and recently obtained a DPhil from the Said Business School at Oxford University studying this field.
Ethan also works with Biolite, a clean-burning cookstove that can generate electricity.
