Optometrists perform comprehensive eye exams from remote locations while communicating with patients via teleconference technology, the firm stated. They then issue corrective contact lens or eyeglass prescriptions.

“The system differs from other telehealth tele-optometry systems primarily because it performs a comprehensive eye health and vision analysis that includes a subjective refraction by a licensed Optometrist and allows voice and visual communication between the remote Optometrist and patient so that conversation and questions between patient and the Optometrist can take place during the optical exam,” according to DigitalOptometrics.

The system offers optometrists an opportunity for business expansion through telemedicine, according to the release.

Host providers “can use their staff Optometrists, DigitalOptometrics Optometrists or a combination of both,” the company stated.
