 Andrew Bastawrous Biography

Dr. Andrew Bastawrous is Co-Founder & CEO of Peek Vision, a social enterprise which develops smartphone technology and public health tools to help eye health organisations increase their impact. He is an Ophthalmologist (Eye Surgeon), and Associate Professor in International Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine where he teaches on public health for eye health and leads a research portfolio.

Dr. Bastawrous has worked and undertaken research in over twenty countries including two years living in Kenya where he was leading a major eye disease study and the development and testing of Peek. He has published over 70 peer-reviewed articles focusing on international eye health and mobile technology in healthcare and has co-authored four book chapters. Dr. Bastawrous was made a TED Fellow in 2014 and has given two TED talks which have together been viewed over 2.5 million times.

Peek's end-to-end services (Peek Solutions) are being used to transform eye health in low- and middle-income countries including Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Botswana with new programmes in development with International NGO partners CBM international and other eye care providers. Peek’s vision check app, Peek Acuity, launched on Google Play store in 2016 and is a Class I medical device, which has been used in over 150 countries.

The work of Dr. Bastawrous and the Peek team has been recognised with generous awards including the Mazda Rebels with a Cause Prize in partnership with TED, the Gifted Citizen 2014 Award, the Index Design Award, and the Rolex Awards for Enterprise. Peek was voted “best social-impact start-up in Europe” by Google and McKinsey in 2016. All prize money has been re-invested in Peek.

Dr. Bastawrous has been listed as one of the world’s 30 most influential people in public health, was selected as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum, and is listed as an “Eye Health Leader” by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness. In 2016 he received the Clearly Vision Life Time Achievement Award and was made a Rolex Laureate. In 2018 Dr. Bastawrous was made an Ashoka Fellow and UBS Global Visionary and in 2019 he was declared a “Champion of Change” in The Ophthalmologist magazine’s 2019 Power List.

In 2018, Dr. Bastawrous was invited to address the Commonwealth Service in the presence of the British Royal Family, Prime Minister, and a global live TV and radio audience. In his address, Dr. Bastawrous highlighted the transformative effects of regaining lost vision, and the importance of international collaboration in ending avoidable blindness and vision loss worldwide.

As part of Peek’s mission to bring vision and health to everyone, Dr. Bastawrous is working with major banks, eye health organisations and funders to develop innovative financing models for eye health, the subject of his 2018 TED Talk.

In addition to his work as CEO of Peek, Dr. Bastawrous has worked with astrophysicists to crowdsource retinal data, with National Geographic explorers to reach isolated communities, and with artists and activists to advocate for eye care globally (Project Light). Together with his wife Madeleine, he is establishing a social enterprise micro-bakery model in Kenya that provides employment and healthy food opportunities for the mass market.
