Global Vision 2020 is always looking toward the future. We dream of ending the world’s epidemic of poor vision and giving hope to people in the most remote areas on earth.
Though we continue to look forward to new opportunities and ways to reach more people who will benefit from the USee System™, we also want to take time to look back at how far we have come. The last few months have been humbling because organizations are noticing the elegant simplicity and power of the USee™ System. Below is a list of some of the highlights.

Now that’s vision.” Adam Brodsley, Co-founder/Creative Director Volume Inc. Read more.
