Naeem Kayani
PLEASANTON, Calif.—IrisVision, a leader in digital vision technologies, has named Naeem Kayani as president and chief operating officer, a newly created position for the fast-growing vision health startup. Kayani has more than 20 years of experience developing software businesses. He joins IrisVision from CoreLogic, where he served as the executive and general manager of multiple business lines, according to the announcement on Monday. “IrisVision is at an exciting stage and has the opportunity to both change lives and open up the world of remote vision care to a world of low vision and at-risk individuals and their clinicians around the world,” said Kayani. “I’m thrilled to join co-founder and CEO Ammad Khan at this critical inflection point for the company and help IrisVision achieve its immediate goals and greater, global aspirations.”

Over the past year, IrisVision has increasingly invested in product innovation, including the expansion of its platform into a cloud-based Digital Vision Clinic (DVC), a new platform that enables clinicians to screen and monitor at-risk patients remotely using a touchless, cellular or wifi-connected solution. Earlier and more frequent patient insights close the gaps between patients and providers to detect vision changes sooner and bring patients into the office for additional care, the announcement noted. 
“The past year has shown clearly the life-changing potential for using digital solutions to expand providers’ reach into patients’ homes for  assistive technologies, and for remote monitoring and telehealth solutions,” IrisVision CEO and co-founder Ammad Khan said. “Naeem’s proven background in operations will help us steer the ship into these new waters and continue our upward trajectory.”  
While at CoreLogic, Kayani led several transformations through re-platforming, operational excellence, improving profits, and drove a successful exit of Rental Property Solution to Park Hill Holdings and Jenark Property Management Software business unit to MRI Software. Prior to CoreLogic, Kayani spent two years at Mr. Cooper, where he was recruited as part of a team hired to rebrand the $2.7 billion mortgage platform from Nationstar Mortgage to Mr. Cooper.
Earlier in his career, Kayani grew Kansas City-based adtech startup AdKnowledge to $300 million in annual revenue and raised $200 million in venture funding.
Launched in 2017, IrisVision’s flagship consumer product employs breakthrough, smart software lens technology that leverages functional areas of the eyes to restore vision instantly. Designed to help users overcome low vision conditions including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa and glaucoma, among others, it features powerful connectivity tools for greater engagement with the world and packages it in a voice-controlled device that makes it easy for anyone to use.
