The blinq™ vision scanner, a diagnostic tool for amblyopia that was created by Boston Children's Hospital Ophthalmologist-in-Chief David G. Hunter, MD, PhD, received an Honorable Mention in Fast Company's 2020 World Changing Ideas Awards competition. Performing a 2-second blinq™ vision scan during pediatric primary care well visits or through public screenings enables children most in need to receive timely treatment for amblyopia and avoid life-altering consequences.

The World Changing Ideas Awards honor businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to combating climate change, social injustice, or economic inequality.
