Around $250,000 (£205,000) has been awarded to five start-ups dedicated to tackling the “largest unaddressed disability” in the world – poor vision.
Vula Mobile won the inaugural Clearly Vision Prize, set up by philanthropist James Chen, for its work using an app to connect primary healthcare workers with specialists – meaning people in remote areas are able to receive basic eye tests.
