LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Use of the DigitalOptometrics (http://www.digitaloptometrics.com/) remotely performed comprehensive eye exam system will be expanded nationwide during 2019. This follows the successful examination of thousands of patients with the proprietary system in the Northeast since the business launched earlier this year. DigitalOptometrics' introduction of tele-optometry to telemedicine has been widely embraced by eye care professionals and has received highest ratings from patients for quality eye exam and enjoyable patient exam experience.

Licensed optometrists now perform quality comprehensive eye exams from remote locations while communicating with patients via teleconference technology and concluding the exam with the issuance of a corrective contact lens or eyeglass prescription. Tele-optometry by DigitalOptometrics delivers both convenience of an optical exam to patients and opportunity for business expansion to Optometrists through telemedicine.

The entire exam is completed in less than 30 minutes and Optometrists can examine patients located at multiple office locations, either from their home or business office location. A host provider can use their staff Optometrists, DigitalOptometrics Optometrists or a combination of both. With a flip of a switch an Optometrist can turn off the remote function of the optical system to perform an on-site exam of the patient. The system differs from other telehealth tele-optometry systems primarily because it performs a comprehensive eye health and vision analysis that includes a subjective refraction by a licensed Optometrist and allows voice and visual communication between the remote Optometrist and patient so that conversation and questions between patient and the Optometrist can take place during the optical exam.

Now Patients no longer will be required to make an appointment for an eye exam that matches both their convenience with the presence of an eye doctor at the exam site. Doctors will be available all days and hours that the optical exam site is open for business permitting the patient to walk-in whenever convenient for a comprehensive eye exam.

A technologically advanced optical exam system for remote comprehensive eye health and vision analysis is joining the telehealth field.
