We like to think destiny had a hand in our history here at First Insight. Nearly three decades ago, our Founder, President and CEO, Nitin Rai, was diagnosed with an eye condition called lattice degeneration. During a checkup with his optometrist, he was drawn to the doctor’s computerized patient tracking system.
A visionary, technologist, and entrepreneur, Nitin knew he could build a better optometry and ophthalmology software solution that would make patient care easier. With help from eye care experts across the country—and a whip-smart team of employees—that’s exactly what he did.
The First Insight story is punctuated by many firsts—milestones that have shaped who we are and the eye care solutions we create. We are grateful for the opportunities we’ve had and the relationships we’ve built as we keep looking forward. Our vision for better ophthalmology and optometry software is rooted in our history. Here are some of those milestones from the very beginning of First Insight.
