“We are rapidly expanding to new states.”
A startup firm called Simple Contacts has raised $2 million in seed funding for its prescription contact lens service.
TechCrunch explains that users take a standard eye test via mobile app. After the test is verified by an ophthalmologist, “users can expect to see a fresh prescription and a new supply of contacts ordered in minutes.”
The exam costs $10, according to Simple Contacts’ website.
The site lists 20 states where the service is available and notes: “We are rapidly expanding to new states.”

Autonomous Ventures led the seed round. Other investors include Justin Kan and Richard Park.
