Scaling our impact

After several years of research and development, the first Peek-powered programmes launched in 2018. It took three years to reach the first million people. And just one year to reach the next four million.

Powering eye health globally

The way I have seen Peek is helping is that you can test somebody’s vision from anywhere as long as you have your phone; you no longer have to walk around with a lot of papers; what we call charts; the ones we used to carry around. If you have your phone; and if you see that someone needs help; wherever you are; even if you are in the rural areas you can test their vision.”

With Peek we are now able to reach the places that we never thought the eye health programmes will take us. I’m also now able to see the impact that the programmes have had; and the number of children and adults that have problems. It is really assisting me with programme planning.”

I live in Kwatito and I love to serve my community. It is fantastic to be able to bring vision screening and basic eye care permanently into the community. Peek definitely makes it easy. The training was fantastic; the screening and data capture is very quick; so you can see many patients within a short amount of time. ”

Peek has brought a fantastic improvement of the system for tracking referrals to here and they are reaching our facilities at a great rate. Here we see Peek referrals very often and the number is growing every day. It is less paperwork and definitely easier to track. If the case needs more advanced treatment they are referred on to KCMC.”
