Eyecarrot Shares the Passing of Chief Scientific Director Dr. Selwyn Super
Toronto, ON, Canada - TheNewswire - Monday March 23th, 2020 - Eyecarrot Innovations Corp., (Eyecarrot) (TSXV:EYC) (OTC:EYCCF) shares the passing of our Chief Scientific Director, Dr. Selwyn Super. Dr. Super was the catalyst in the founding of Eyecarrot, and was the visionary that helped guide and direct our efforts from very early on.
It was a chance encounter with Dr. Super that lead Eyecarrot Founder and CEO Adam Cegielski to begin our journey towards better human performance through better vision: our ambitious goal was to create an organization that could empower clinicians to change the way we understand, care for, treat, and approach vision. Fondly, Adam noted "It was Dr. Super who encouraged us to work with --and acquire-- Wayne Engineering, the basis for Binovi Touch". Dr. Super's active involvement, work, and insights were instrumental in formulating both our short- and long-term goals and strategy. Together, they have ensured that our foundations are anchored in a global perspective of research and practice working together. It is Dr. Super's life's work and core concepts that fuel our Binovi platform and we have been humbled and grateful for his guidance.
Beyond his accomplishments as a specialist in the field of behavioral- and neuro-optometry, neurocognitive development, binocular vision, and educational psychology, it's Dr. Super's passion and belief in human potential that made us all into believers. Dr. Super fits every possible description of what it means to be a visionary. He will be sorely missed.
