EXAMS / DISPENSING

Colorado Startup, Pupil, Offers Mobile Eye Testing


Product: On-demand vision testing service
Top Line: Pupil, a Colorado-based startup, has launched an on-demand vision testing service. Unlike other mobile eye exams, Pupil’s devices offer diagnostic screening capabilities utilizing retinal imaging and eye pressure devices for a more thorough assessment of eye health.
Close Up: Patients book a day and time on Pupil’s website, and a professional technician arrives to oversee a 30-minute vision exam which determines their need for prescription eyeglasses. The data is then securely transferred via cloud-based software to a remote optometrist who will then digitally prescribe eyeglasses if needed, or refer the patient to a local eye doctor for further evaluation.
Pupil employs only nationally certified paraoptometric technicians to oversee the patient’s vision screening who have ocular refraction backgrounds and undergo training in-house with Pupil. Pupil technicians collect refraction and diagnostic data which is then reviewed by the physician. They are equipped with five different devices, three of which were developed by EyeNetra: Netra, a smartphone-powered device that outputs the sphere, cylinder, axis and PD measurements; the Netrometer, a type of lensmeter and the Netropter, which functions like a phoropter. The kit also includes a retinal camera and a tonometer.
Vital Stats: Pupil does not currently accept insurance and charges $75 per mobile exam in the Colorado Springs coverage area. The company currently only serves the Colorado Springs area, however promises expansion in the coming months.
Pupil said its mobile screening is not designed to take the place of a comprehensive eye exam performed by an eyecare professional, as indicated by multiple disclaimers on the its website. Pupil also advocates for the optometric profession by providing patients with educational material and encouraging them to see an eye doctor at least every two years, or as advised.

Jeanie Premium Products Offers Retooling Rotation Program for Labs


Product: Retooling Rotation Program
Top Line: In addition to providing labs with new tooling on-demand, Jeanie Premium Products now offers a program to help labs manage their diamond tooling supply and inventory.
Close Up: Labs send their used tooling to Jeanie on a blanket order for relap and reblade, includes 6- 8- and 12-tooth milling cutters. Jeanie completes all the work required, releasing only what the lab needs. The company will stock additional tooling and then release it to the lab in 30 days.
“This program has proven to help the labs manage their tooling inventory as well as stay within budget,” said Melissa Veeser, owner of Jeanie Premium Products.
“They send all of their used milling cutters in early, knowing it will be ready to ship to them when they need it. They love it because they get their cutters back, are able to better manage their tooling needs and improve their inventory management.”
