This marks the first of many new EyeQue offerings set to innovate the eye care industry this year
NEWARK, Calif. and SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 23, 2021 – EyeQue, the leader in award-winning smartphone vision tests, has announced a partnership with EyecareLive to offer virtual eye health appointments with expert eye doctors. Consumers can now access EyecareLive’s growing network of more than 4,000 eye doctors through EyeQue.com to conveniently connect on any eye health concern.
“Our partnership with EyecareLive is a major step in EyeQue’s plan to offer everything you need to take care of your eyes – all in one place,” said John Serri, PhD, co-founder and President of EyeQue. “From the highest quality eye care with expert doctors to the most powerful and accurate smartphone vision tests, EyeQue is on a mission to bring the future of vision care to the home.”
EyeQue and EyecareLive share a common mission – to make eye care convenient, affordable, safe, and accessible. EyecareLive enables consumers to virtually meet with licensed eye care doctors in their area, including their own doctor. Appointments are available the same day – most within one hour – and start at $59, with no insurance needed. The doctors will be able to diagnose, evaluate, and provide a personalized treatment plan for a variety of eye conditions, including dry eye, pink eye, eye allergies, and more.
“We are excited to partner with EyeQue to extend virtual care to consumers who are in need of an eye health consultation,” said Raj Ramchandani, CEO of EyecareLive. “While EyeQue’s smartphone screening devices empower consumers to track their vision between doctors’ visits, this new partnership gives consumers access to video visits with an EyecareLive eye doctor to address immediate eye health concerns, and to gain valuable eye care information.”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, adoption for telehealth and telemedicine has accelerated. It offers many advantages over traditional health care, particularly convenience and safety for both patients and doctors. According to a survey from the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, almost 80 percent of people who used telehealth during COVID-19 reported patient satisfaction, and over 70 percent expect to access virtual care post-pandemic. Tele-optometry is no different. Innovative technologies, like EyecareLive and its HIPPA secure platform, are the future of digital vision care – and one that both patients and doctors prefer for the convenience, cost, and accessibility.
EyeQue, the leader of smartphone vision testing, saw a surge in consumer and doctor demand for their portfolio of vision tests during the pandemic. Consumers who were wary of visiting a doctor in person, opted for testing their vision at home and ordering updated glasses online. EyeQue is a simple way to test your vision at home but does not replace a comprehensive eye health exam by an optometrist. EyeQue strongly recommends people visit an eye care professional regularly to receive a complete eye health exam.
EyeQue’s smartphone-based vision tests offer doctors an accurate, convenient way to remotely monitor their patient’s vision – particularly those recovering from surgery or with medical conditions where frequent vision screenings are part of treatment.
EyeQue’s latest innovation, EyeQue VisionCheck 2, is the most powerful refraction device available for consumers to test their own vision and order new glasses with the results – all without leaving the safety and comfort of home. The test results are expressed as EyeGlass Numbers® (EGNs), the lens-power needed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. EyeQue Try-On Glasses™ are a low-cost, quick-shipping pair of test-glasses custom-made with your vision test results, so you can experience your EGNs before shopping for new glasses online. EyeQue’s optical smartphone attachments are shareable, so family and friends can also test their vision at no additional cost as long as each person uses their own free EyeQue account for personalized, custom results.
