From nagging headaches to new-age eyewear.
Matt Michelsen’s chronic experience with headaches and eye strain was caused by spending long hours in front of screens. And just like anyone else, he visited the Optometrist, who quickly diagnosed him with Digital Eye Strain. The problem with this—there’s no real way to reduce screen time especially if your work requires you to work on your computer all day long.
And like any real entrepreneur would do, Matt searched for ways to offer himself and millions like him everywhere with eyewear that allow them to use their devices without any of that chronic aches, itchiness, and strain.
