While initially planning to launch this April, vision-care startup You See Clear has landed funding and plans to make its first market entry next May.

The social enterprise co-founded by Carleton University student Babur Jahid aims to address one of Afghanistan’s biggest health-care crises by providing more affordable access to eye care in the country.

Winning the Resolution Project’s social venture pitch competition earned the company an undisclosed amount of financing along with a fellowship that will open lots of doors as the fledgling firm expands, says Mr. Jahid.
