About The Guest
Whilst studying Optometry at university, I launched the development of the initial product offering at Ocushield - blue light filtering technology that make eyes healthier, improves sleep and makes people happier.
Currently deploying a newly developed online eye screening test, accessible for the flexible workforce via a web URL.
Having received a development grant from City University of London, I built Ocushield into an internationally distributed, MHRA/FDA medically registered product that transformed hundreds of thousands of peoples eye health and quality of life.
From humble beginnings to building Ocushield, getting featured on Dragons' Den (and winning over Peter Jones & Tej Lalvani in the process), Forbes, The Guardian & USA Today - talking about eye health and blue light, it’s been an entrepreneurial journey full of ups and downs and yes a lot of lessons and joys.
At Ocushield, we have helped over 300,000 eyes in over 70 countries with our products to protect their eyes.
We envision a world aware of eye health in the times of the booming digitisation and the accompanying eye strain thus helping people develop healthier eyes and happier lives.
