Graduate Finalist

Everett Lawson is a master’s degree student in the MIT Media Lab. Everett invented eyeMITRA,
a small, inexpensive device to non-invasively screen and monitor the early development of many
systemic diseases that manifest in the back of the eye years before detection with standard
methods. This disruptive technology enabled by clever optics, computational imaging
techniques and novel illumination can extract vital information about your well-being, including
early stages of diabetic retinopathy, the world's leading cause of preventable blindness.
