Phelcom was created from the personal story of Diego Lencione, one of the founders, who witnessed his brother’s retina and vision impairment since childhood. This triggered his interest in visual health, and, together with Flávio Paschoal Vieira and José Augusto Stuchi, resulted in the development of Eyer – a portable retinal camera that aims to help combat severe visual impairment and blindness.

Through partnerships with professionals committed to this mission, it has reached more than two million people across Brazil and the world.
