Founder & Chief Executive Officer, OKKO Health
Stephanie is an experienced eye specialist, vision scientist and founder & CEO of OKKO Health, a digital eye care start up in Bristol, UK. Years of simultaneously working in a hospital eye clinic and studying for a PhD in the early detection of eye disease, Stephanie realised that there was a wide gap between the vision testing possible in a research setting; and what was actually available to the patients and doctors who needed it most.
OKKO’s video game apps collect lab-grade measurements of vision on a smartphone anytime and anywhere and harnesses the modern phone sensors to provide much more clinical information than a regular eye chart ever could. This has the potential to deliver early diagnosis and on-time treatment to millions, with quality eye care now possible in the comfort of the patient’s own home.
OKKO are developing digital biomarkers of visual health to power the remote monitoring, screening and diagnosis of eye disease. This is to fuel vast efficiencies in the eye care industry, driving toward high quality eye care that is affordable and accessible.
