The average American adult spends 11 hours a day looking at screens!
Stay-at-home orders in the wake of the COVID pandemic have significantly increased the amount of time spent looking at screens for those that work from home or attending online school, virtual events, or online entertainment. Prolonged screen usage can cause dry eyes, eye fatigue, and many other vision-related issues. This is a pervasive issue; over 50% of North Americans have some form of dry eye, and many are unaware they even have it. Investors with an interest in solving this issue would be wise to take note of innovative, trustworthy solutions that may arise.
Unfortunately, Sightsage founder Dr. Weidong Yu believes that the problem will only get worse as screens become even more common. Dr. Yu and the Sightsage team hope to raise awareness about vision issues caused by increased screen time and to let the world know that there is a solution for it.
Protecting Vision Amidst the Increase in Screen Time
Sightsage is a Canadian company that formulates and distributes whole-food-based nutritional supplements specifically for vision wellness. The business was founded by Dr. Weidong Yu, a world-renowned doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dr. Yu is most well known for his success in the treatment of retinal eye disorders. With over 30 years of clinical experience, he has formulated supplements intended to strengthen eye wellness and combat the negative effects of increased screen time.
The Foundation of Vision Wellness
Dr. Yu built the Sightsage brand around three central pillars: natural sustenance, self-care, and responsible digital living. According to him, Sightsage's aim is to reduce discomfort and improve vision wellness so that consumers don't have to give up the digital lifestyle, so they can live and work without worry or strain. Dr. Yu emphasizes his commitment to using only high-quality, natural ingredients in Sightsage products. This is evident in the composition of the SightC Supplement (one of the site's most popular), which utilizes goji berries, dandelion, Cherokee Rose, Dwarf Lilyturf, Chinese yam, turmeric, and hawthorn. "All of these ingredients have proven anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, or other detoxifying properties that aid in eye care," he explains. Sightsage is running a clinical trial to test their Blueberry Gummies' effect on dry eye disease with the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo in Canada. Guided by 30 years of expertise in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the natural nutrition field, Dr. Yu has established himself and his company as trusted sources in the field of natural vision wellness.
Screen Use Will Continue to Rise (For the Foreseeable Future)
Sightsage's mission is far from over. Screens are becoming even cheaper to produce and advertisers are finding more and more spaces to advertise on; consider the recent trend towards replacing glass cooler doors with screens displaying targeted ads at stores such as Walgreens (NASDAQ: WBA). As the amount of screens we interact with increases, so will the strain on our eyes. Though it's clear they have their work cut out for them, Sightsage is always looking to develop new solutions to stay ahead of the curve.
Sightsage: A Brighter Vision of the Future
Sightsage looks on its past with pride and towards the future with optimism. Over the next few years, the team hopes to continue growing the company steadily. It would like to expand both its workforce and client base, and eventually, conquer the thriving natural vision wellness market. However, it all begins with getting the word out about a solution to a problem that many people don't even know can be fixed. With the team's strong leadership and passion for vision wellness, it seems more than likely that Sightsage will find a way to accomplish its goals.
