“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.”
