Product: Visibly’s virtual vision test technology.
Top Line: Visibly will offer free access to its virtual vision test technology to optometrists, ophthalmologists, and optical service providers globally.
Close Up: Visibly’s online technology allows patients to complete a vision test in 10 minutes or less, according to the company. It also allows for the duplication of an existing prescription that is signed by licensed eyecare professional and can be used to purchase glasses or contact lenses. ECPs can access the technology for free by emailing: Visibly’s visual acuity test is distinct from the company’s full refraction product, for which the FDA issued a recall in August, 2019.
Vital Stats: Brent Rasmussen, Visibly’s CEO said, “We are thrilled to offer Visibly to all doctors and service providers free of charge during this global pandemic, which is making it increasingly difficult for patients and consumers to renew prescriptions for their corrective lenses and glasses. We recognize that the limitations caused by COVID-19 have created significant strain on the optical industry. We are confident that our technology will streamline the process for optometrists, ophthalmologists and patients alike, resulting in a greatly reduced lapse in service for consumers, while keeping individuals safe.”
