I’m pleased to announce that NETRA/CATRA, our project on self-assessment devices to detect and measure eye problems has won the 1st prize in the Vodafone America’s Foundation Wireless Innovation Project:

We’re very happy with this prize, that granted more U$ 300k to continue pursuing our goal of helping people to become more aware of their vision capabilities and limitations.

Meanwhile, we still need your help to win the MIT Global Challenge award and grant U$ 25k to help the world’s largest eye institute (LV Prasad/India) do field tests of our new device to detect and quantify cataracts. Please, register and vote for us:
