Eyes as a window for wellbeing – focus on creating a simplified experience for everyday eye care

IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE
Heikki Herranen has simplified the technology of eye screening and created a camera that brings the process closer to people, abandoning the notion that eye care is only about medical treatment. With our eyes we can see, feel and experience moments in time stronger than with any other part of our body. Our eyes can also reveal truths about our health. So we have to take good care of our eyes. The camera gives us the freedom and the power to do exactly that.

SE DET I ØJNENE
Heikki Herranen har forenklet teknologien omkring øjen-screening og skabt et kamera, der bringer processen tættere på folk og gør op med forestillingen om, at øjenpleje kun handler om medicinsk behandling. Med øjnene kan vi se, føle og opleve øjeblikke stærkere end med nogen anden del af vores krop. Vores øjne kan også fortælle os ting om vores helbred. Så vi skal passe på dem. Kameraet giver os frihed og magt til at gøre netop det.
