24 32 *Source: Essilor Base of Pyramid Need but no demand Not affordable Little access Emerging Middle Class Need and demand Affordable Need testing Top of Pyramid Need and demand Affordable Access to testing 10% 40% A small rise in income = Massive jump in demand for Eyecare A small rise in income drives massive jump in demand for eyecare

25 Big Need/Market: 300M+ without glasses who need them Underserved: 10K optometrists for > 1B people Demand: 100K Optical shops demand auto-refractors and quality/low cost glasses No Regulation on medical devices or prescribing/selling glasses Good infrastructure: Eyeglasses makers available in major cities Expertise of founders Great traction with partners 25 Why India

26 Today: Entrepreneurs have to spend a lot of money to open up an optical shop: Autorefractor* - $5000. Large up front cost. Rely on patients coming to store Must have own linkages to fulfillment – difficult to negotiate good rates 26 India Opticals Today Vs. Tomorrow *Many don’t have testing equipment because of price or lack of trained professional/optometrist.

27 Tomorrow:  FREE (or low cost) diagnostic  High quality product fulfillment included NETRA – G, free or low cost Access to new clients via 1-800-EYENETRA call center which funnels and relays testing requests Wireless connection to discounted brand-name lenses and frames 27 India Opticals Today Vs. Tomorrow
