The IRIS Team is Ending Preventable Blindness

About IRIS

A Team Built on Passion

In 2011, after treating patient after patient with preventable diabetic blindness, nationally-recognized retinal surgeon, Dr. Sunil Gupta, created IRIS with the mission of diagnosing eye disease early enough to treat it and stop the progression of vision loss. He believed that through innovative and forward-thinking preventative care systems it would be possible to save the sight of millions of patients. 

Today, IRIS exists for that simple reason: To improve people’s lives. For every member of our team, it’s about more than making a product. It’s about improving outcomes and changing futures. 

Culture

There are few times in life when opportunity allows us to make a real difference. IRIS is that opportunity.

IRIS exists to improve people’s lives. We do it every day. It’s not about making money or making a product—it’s truly about changing someone’s future.

Our collective passion and desire to make a difference are part of what we call 'The IRIS Way.' This set of values and practices affect how we conduct business and help define not just who we are at work, but as people striving to make a difference in the world.

Culture

The IRIS Way

At IRIS, we pledge to live the IRIS Way for those we serve, both internal and external, by upholding and living these core values:

We will be honest, transparent, genuine and ethical by always doing the right things, for the right seasons, at the right time, even when no one is watching or aware, because it’s the right thing to do.  

We will show deep respect for all people (inside and outside of our organization) by listening to and valuing others needs, while also respecting the environments in which people work by implementing safe, effective, and sustainable solutions.

We will constantly improve and innovate, while also always striving for simplicity to ensure that the solutions we implement address the needs of others - we will seek to disrupt the norm and implement changes that improve the lives of others and produce positive outcomes.

Along with our values comes a set of expectations, or standards of performance, that define how we are to live and exemplify the IRIS Way. We will live our values by holding ourselves and each other accountable to acting this way towards one another and to those whom we serve:

We will always work as a team and go boldly, with courage, passion, and perseverance, having each others’ back, every step of the way.

We will hold ourselves and our partners accountable to achieving successful results, by answering to our choices, actions, and behaviors, and willingly embrace when someone challenges us or asks “Why?”.  

We will solve problems in a timely manner and learn from issues so we can fix our processes and become more proactive at responding in the future.

 

We're Hiring.
Help us change the future.
