Our Story:

St Louis.jpg

We are a socially-conscious, for-profit company that believes in the potential of entrepreneurship to drive large-scale social change.

We started as two college roommates who were shocked by the number of people in the developing world who needed eyeglasses, and surprised that even the most innovative solutions had failed to make a significant impact.

Driven by a desire to make a difference, we developed a pair of glasses designed specifically to address the unique challenges of distributing eyeglasses in developing countries. After more than a year of lots of caffeine and little sleep, we 3D printed our prototype, won several awards and over $33,000 in funding, and gained the support to turn ViFlex into a sustainable, scalable, and high-impact solution.

Since then, we have expanded our team and built partnerships across multiple continents. We are grateful for the support we have received, proud of the progress we have made, and committed to executing our mission.
