While Trend Hunter, our partner, covered the 'Peek' app in 2013, here is another look at Peek Vision, who recently won the digital Design of the Year. PEEK stands for "portable eye examination kit," and it operates as a simple, inexpensive mobile option that can be used in various settings.
While Peek Vision itself attempts to be a simple solution, the problem itself is quite complex. They state that almost 300 million people are visually impaired and even further, almost 40 million are blind. Much of this is all avoidable, which is where this innovation comes in. It allows rural areas to conduct their own eye examinations through a smartphone.
