The new employees will “help optometrists and opticians learn more about the products and services that can allow for remote and non-contact eye-care assessments,” according to a press release.

Compiler Venture Capital, based in Washington, DC, and Miami, is a lead investor in IbisVision. Late last year, Compiler invested $1.11 million in the firm, whose platform is called Ring of Sight.

Compiler is facilitating IbisVision’s entry into the U.S. optical health market. IbisVision is accelerating the rollout of its platform in the U.S. and the U.K. as a result of the pandemic.

Melville Berwick, commercial director for IbisVision, said, “Whilst we could never have foreseen the circumstances that we all face now, the Covid-19 pandemic has added real urgency to our efforts at IbisVision and validated our remote optometrist technology focus.”

According to the company: “The platform facilitates optical professionals to remotely examine eyes, or do so in the same location but without close contact, using a variety of tests including 24–2, Amsler Grid, Ishihara Colour and Visual Acuity. This allows for appointments, assessments, prescriptions, all without any need for direct contact between the medical professional and patient.”
