Last year Opternative went on Indiegogo to raise funds for their online eye exam. This year they now have received $1 Million in funding to allow people to get their eyes examined online and receive a prescription. For just $35.00 , Opternative’s test will take five to 10 minutes. The launch is planned for this summer.
With millions of people who cannot afford an eye exam, the ability to use a smart phone in inaccessible areas, the online eye exam has potential.
Along with that, is the ability to license out the technology to online eyeglass retailers as well as brick and mortar eyecare professionals.
It could have far reaching potential. More information on Opternative
