Our VR Technology

We are at the center of innovation. Wazi, with support from the United States Africa Development Foundation (USADF) and Greentec Capital Partners, have developed a software that uses Virtual Reality technology to test for eye acuity without the need for an optometrist. This kit will help Wazi be able to reach communities that do not have optical centers or need to travel long distances to access basic eye care. The VR gear has been intuitively designed with modules for adults and also for children. It is interactive, easy to use and needs no prior knowledge of optometry. Anyone can use the kit to perform an eye test!
