WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Last week, IFB Solutions and Luxexcel, the only company in the world with technology that can 3D-print custom ophthalmic lenses, provided more than a dozen local students with free eyeglasses.
The eyeglasses, which where made at IFB Solutions using the printer developed by Luxexcel, were distributed on Thursday, March 7, at the IFB location on North Point Blvd. As the students from various schools across the district entered the building, they were greeted by the smiling faces of the IFB team.
According to event organizers, the students were selected based on need. In a press release Michael Pesce, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools director of social work, said one of the biggest challenges they face is making sure students have what they need to be successful and that’s why they are grateful for the partnership with IFB and Luxexcel.
