CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Visibly, the world’s first virtual vision test technology company, today announced that it will globally provide optometrists, ophthalmologists, and optical service providers free access to its anywhere, anytime virtual vision test technology to ensure that patients can meet their eye health needs during this unprecedented time.
“We are thrilled to offer Visibly to all doctors and service providers free of charge during this global pandemic, which is making it increasingly difficult for patients and consumers to renew prescriptions for their corrective lenses and glasses,” said Brent Rasmussen, Chief Executive Officer of Visibly. “We recognize that the limitations caused by COVID-19 have created significant strain on the optical industry. We are confident that our technology will streamline the process for optometrists, ophthalmologists and patients alike, resulting in a greatly reduced lapse in service for consumers, while keeping individuals safe.”
Visibly is the world’s first advanced eye care telehealth technology that connects consumers with licensed eye care professionals (ECP) for a vision test without the need for an in-person appointment. The Visibly technology can be accessed anywhere, anytime whether that is online from a consumer’s home or work or in a brick and mortar retail setting, allowing consumers to complete a vision test in 10 minutes or less. The easy-to-use technology results in a valid prescription signed by a licensed ECP that can be used to purchase glasses or contacts from any retailer without any lapse in service.
Visibly’s mission is to create digital eye care technologies that enable patient choice and convenience while providing retailers and practitioners the ability to deliver awesome experiences.
Visibly was founded with the belief that glasses and contact lens prescriptions should be accessible and affordable to everyone. Online vision testing is just the start; Visibly envisions a world where technology enables patients and doctors to connect easily to make all aspects of vision care convenient and accessible for all.
