NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GoCheck, creator of the GoCheck Kids digital vision screening platform, announced an investment round of $10 million to grow its team, platform and customer partnerships. "The research is clear, so much in a child's life is transformed when they can see well—their confidence, relationships, learning, and eventual educational and financial outcomes," said Kevon Saber, GoCheck's CEO. "We are striving for a future where everyone everywhere can see and fulfill their potential and children, parents, and providers are no longer in the dark.

"This financing is a step toward this brighter future and a testament to both the massive unmet need for pediatric vision screening and the resolve of GoCheck's teammates," he said.
GoCheck Kids is designed to reduce the cost of early vision screening by more than half, according to the GoCheck. The digital platform, which is FDA-registered and CE-certified, leverages the iPhone technologies such as CoreML and its manufacturing scale to accelerate access to vision care and lower health care costs, the company said.
"In our primary care practices at Nemours, we've found that when we bring together clinical quality and advanced technology, we can deliver state-of-the-art health care more efficiently to reduce friction and create a better patient care experience. GoCheck Kids is doing that with a solution that provides exceptional clinical results with a high return on investment," said Dr. Jonathan Miller, medical director of value-based care for Nemours Children's Health System.
GoCheck reports that 6,500 pediatric teams on three continents use GoCheck Kids to prevent vision impairment and blindness in children. These hospitals, private practices, schools, and screening organizations have screened five million patients.
