EVERYTHING YOUR EYES NEED- NOTHING THEY DON'T

Making Technology Human Kind (MTHK)

Why we're here

Wake up: check your phone. Go to work: sit in front of a screen. Lunch break: check your phone...

Our eyes aren't meant to stare at screens all day. They're working harder than ever - and in new ways. Cutting screen time is a good idea, but in practice it's hard.

We set up MTHK to make it easier to look after your eyes (then check your email).

HOW IT STARTED

A glasses-wearer for 40 years, countless trips to the optician and eye hospitals from the age of 7, contact lenses, dry eyes, laser eye surgery... our founder, Amar's, eyes have been through a lot. But when his daughters got headaches and sore eyes after more screen time during the pandemic, Amar started thinking more about eyes. How much we demand of them, but how little we take care of them made no sense. After almost 100 interviews with friends and colleagues, Amar realised our eyes suffer from sitting in front of screens all day, but there were very few - if any - products out there to really help.
Amar set out to change things by teaming up with the world's best. An entrepreneur by trade, he contacted over 40 professors and surgeons at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London to find out more about the eyes, what staring at bright screens all day does to them, and how we can take better care of them every day. Three specialists at Moorfields then co-founded MTHK with Amar to make it easier for us all to look after our eyes.
