HPO was founded in 2006 by Dr. Andrew Ishak, OD FAAO, through work focused on protecting the human retina from high-energy visible light. HPO’s first application opportunities were in the ophthalmic space, where it licensed IP and technology to some of the largest companies in the world. With nearly 100 patent applications issued or pending, HPO’s IP and technology help protect millions of eyes from the dangers of high-energy blue light.
