Tracey Technologies Mission

Our Mission

At Tracey Technologies, everything we do is dictated by a simple belief: Quality of Vision IS Quality of Life. That’s why we are devoted to bringing doctors the technology they need to understand vision at a deeper level. Analyzing vision at the corneal and lenticular level leads to better patient outcomes as iTrace doctors are able to more accurately diagnose and precisely treat their patients.

iTRACE Eye Scan

About Tracey Technologies

After our CEO, Joe Wakil, brought corneal topography to the eyecare field, he realized the value of adding diagnostic aberrometry to the equation. While scientists have long used ray-tracing for precision measuring in other fields, Tracey Technologies was founded by a team of doctors in 1999 to bring ray-tracing technology to the eyecare industry. His team created an integrated wavefront aberrometer and corneal topographer designed to objectively measure vision in any patient. To this day, the iTrace remains the only device on the market that can accurately scan every patient, including those with higher order aberrations and implanted lenses.

WHY I CHOOSE THE iTRACE

“I think that anyone who’s doing Toric IOLs really must have an iTrace. Because post-operatively, more particularly, it’ll tell you where the lens is sitting and it’ll tell you if you need to go back and rotate it. I’m amazed at how accurate it is.”

OUR PEOPLE

The Tracey Technologies management team is comprised of industry veterans that share a passion for helping doctors around the world improve their patients’ lives.

Joe Wakil, Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Wakil has over 30 years’ experience in the medical products industry. In 1983, he co-founded Corazonix Corporation, a cardiovascular instrument manufacturer concentrating in the ultrasound and electrophysiology product areas. Corazonix eventually licensed technologies to AH Robins, Hewlett Packard and Arrhythmia Research Technologies. In 1986, Dr. Wakil founded EyeSys Technologies, Inc., a “leading edge” technology development company in the eye care field. EyeSys has grown to a $10 million operation and is largely credited with establishing the field of corneal topography. Dr. Wakil has held various positions with EyeSys, including Chief Executive Officer, and is currently Chairman of the Board of EyeSys. In 1999, Dr. Wakil and a team of international surgeons and scientists founded Tracey Technologies to develop and commercialize the technology known as Ray Tracing in the ophthalmic space. As the Chief Executive Officer of Tracey Technologies, Dr. Wakil has brought this leading edge technology to eye care professionals and is affecting patients’ quality of vision outcomes along the way. As an internationally recognized educator in his fields, Dr. Wakil has lectured extensively around the world. His formal education includes a B.S. Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University, a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Rice University, and a Medical Degree from Baylor College of Medicine (1990).

Ray Sievert, VP of Sales and Marketing

Mr. Sievert brings to Tracey over 35 years experience in ophthalmic sales and sales management. Sievert began his career in the ophthalmic industry as a territory sales representative with Barnes Hind Hydrocurve in 1983 where he began a long association with the contact lens and solution innovator. This position led to Regional Manager and Sales Director roles where he eventually managed over $40 Million in sales to national distributors and retail chains. Sievert joined EyeSys Technologies, the innovator in corneal topography, as head of sales for North America. After EyeSys was acquired, Sievert moved on to become the Vice President of National Accounts for Akorn, a generic pharmaceutical manufacturer in the ophthalmic industry. While at Akorn, Sievert created a period of dramatic sales growth driving a 500% sales increase in just over three years. After that success, Sievert, as Vice President of Trade Sales, helped commercialize the entrance of Santen, Inc. into the US market by seeding the branded ophthalmic pharmaceuticals into all major wholesalers. Just prior to joining Tracey, Sievert has been head of sales of HUB Pharmaceuticals, an innovative diagnostic and in-office-use pharmaceutical company. At Tracey, Sievert has lectured around the world to Ophthalmologists on the benefits of the iTrace device and is seen as a subject matter expert on Aberropia and Ray Tracing.
