plano exists for a clear purpose; to Save sight and Empower lives.

1.5 billion people suffer from myopia, also known as short-sightedness. This number will rise to 5 billion by 2050, and 1 billion will develop high myopia, which can lead to blindness. Studies have shown that excessive smart device use is a key contributing factor.

While we support the advances and uptake of technology, we believe in building safe and healthy relationships with devices. At plano, we provide Innovative solutions to better manage smart device use and eye health worldwide.
