CEO and Founder, Okimo Vision Ltd.
Gabriela Galilea is the founder of Okimo, an alternative diagnostics software that uses sensors for the early detection of vision and developmental problems that affect learning in school-aged children. Gabriela’s work is rooted in her personal experiences as a visually impaired person in Paraguay. As a child, her parents had to take her abroad to receive treatment; there are only 250 ophthalmologists for a population of almost 7 million people in Paraguay and the majority of them are located in the capital. With Okimo, her goal is to provide preventative visual and developmental screenings to every child in the world, and treatment via telemedicine.
