Forus is a reason India "should scare Silicon Valley"


Technology entrepreneur and academic Vivek Wadhwa has touted Forus Health in The Washington Post.

In the article, "Why Silicon Valley Should Fear India" Wadhwa mentions Forus in a similar vein to Thomas Friedman's recent New York Times article "India's Innovation Stimulus."

From Wadhwa's piece: Another company that I met last year, Forus Health, just started shipping its pre-screening tool for the early detection of cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retina, refraction and cornea problems that are common in the developing world. Their device, which can be operated by minimally trained technicians in rural India, is portable and sells for a small fraction of the cost of Western alternatives. It promises to save the sight of tens of millions of people.
