On October 27th, Eyesafe, a leader in blue light mitigating solutions and technology, was awarded the number one spot on the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal list of the 50 fastest growing private companies in the Twin Cities area.
“With the average American spending 13-plus hours a day on screens and 96% of eye doctors concerned about the amount of time we spend on devices, while 86% of parents are concerned about the impacts of digital devices on young developing eyes, Eyesafe is perfectly positioned to become the consumers’ No. 1 trusted brand for protection from blue light,” comments Justin Barrett, CEO of Eyesafe, “We’re driving to protect 500 million eyes across the globe in the coming year.”
Eyesafe was founded in 2014 and has since developed several noteworthy blue light mitigating solutions including Eyesafe® Standards, Eyesafe® Screen Protection, and Eyesafe® DTX – a low blue light technology that utilizes and recycles blue light within the display to improve color and battery performance. Eyesafe is currently integrated in millions of products manufactured by leading brands including Dell, ZAGG, HP, Lenovo, LG Display, and more.
Eyesafe works closely with a world class team of doctors, engineers, and scientists to develop advanced blue light mitigating technology, solutions, and standards. “We invest our time properly to build health-first products designed with industry-standards compliance and supported by research,” says Barrett.
When asked how he will continue to motivate his team and maintain the company’s growth, Barrett answered that he plans to “be empowered and make the decisions to move [the company] forward in everything we do.” Barrett also offers a piece of advice to other team leaders: “Don’t be afraid to fail and make mistakes. Trust your judgment and the process and we will be successful.”
