I remember listening to the Reverend Richard Holloway, the Bishop of Edinburgh, delivering a sermon in St Giles Cathedral to mark the opening of the Edinburgh Science Festival. His opening line was:-
“every day I thank God for technology because I wake up, reach out my hand for my spectacles which I left on my bedside table overnight and put them on so that I can see”
Millions of people in the developed world are able to see to read, work and generally enjoy fulfilling lives because of spectacles which we all take for granted.
However, there are also many hundreds of millions and possibly billions of people in the developing world and the third world who do not have access to spectacles because they do not have access to an optician or to the numerous types of reading glasses which are to be found in any supermarket or chemist shop in the developed world.
A few years ago I met the team at www.eyejusters.com who were developing a completely new type of adjustable eye glasses. I was thrilled to receive a copy of their new product in the mail and, having tried them on and worn them for a day, I can see what an extraordinary groundbreaking product they have developed. Their great triumph is to have made a really complex piece of technology seem incredibly simple to the user and to develop something which has the genuine potential to enhance the lives of countless millions of people across the globe.
They are to be congratulated on their persistence over the years in bringing the development part of their project to a successful fruition and to create a business with enormous potential as they roll their product out across the globe. Anyone looking for a new pair of reading glasses should have a look at www.eyejusters.com.
