RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup #13 with J. Kevin White
J. Kevin White (USNA ’92) is the Founder and Executive Director of Global Vision 2020, a non-profit organization that delivers prescription eyeglasses to people in the developing world at a game-changing combination of low cost and efficiency.
Prior to his retirement from the Marine Corps, Kevin was stationed at European Command (EUCOM) as the Humanitarian Assistance Program Manager, where he planned, budgeted, and assisted in the execution of humanitarian missions in Eastern Europe and Africa. His first mission to Morocco was a US medical outreach that included vision screening.
Kevin saw critical inefficiencies: the trial-and-error screening process was cumbersome, and the client rarely received 20/20 vision in both eyes, often choosing fashion over function. He went to work on the problem immediately, and after a decade of research and development produced USee: a vision diagnostic tool that allows almost anyone, anywhere, to deliver eyeglasses to everyone, everywhere… for under five dollars.
The USee system has won multiple awards for design, innovation, and impact. It can help literally tens of millions of people across the developing world live better, happier, more productive lives.
This story is about the impact we can ALL have when we choose to see what’s right in front of us… differently.
