    The company targeting blindness:Gore-Tex is a company that makes waterproof clothing, air filters, headlight vents, and guitar strings. Its next innovation is a total pivot: Gore is making its first foray into the eye. The company has decided to tackle corneal blindness by making artificial corneas that are easy to implant. The question remains — Can an incumbent disrupt itself when the pressure’s on?

    “There’s millions of people outside the U.S. who are blind. We have unique materials. We have done this kind of work.”

    They are doing good work though.
