It is with pride that we announce a partnership between IRIS and Mirage! Canada’s largest optical and vision network joins Mirage as main partner.
Vision is a central faculty in esports and weakness at this level can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Being exposed for long hours in front of a screen at a high level of concentration, visual fatigue can quickly happens and affects performance. It is with a goal of collaboration to increase the standards of visual health in esports that IRIS partners with Mirage. Also, IRIS’s expertise will greatly help Mirage’s players to use their visual ability to their full potential as well as to prevent problems that could be related to too much exposure to computer screens.
IRIS has a long history of involvement in sports in Canada. They are currently one of the major sponsors at the Rogers Cup in tennis, supporting a bicycle team, amateur alpin skiing and are involved in the community around the world such as their implication in IRIS Mundial, which helps provide visual care to people who do not have access to them.
For esports in Canada, this is the first major opening for companies that are usually less involved in this emerging sport. Mirage’s goal is to become a model in the practice of healthy esports, and we seek to partner with partners who share the same values and goals. IRIS was therefore an ideal partner in pursuit of this goal. More exciting announcements coming in the coming weeks!
