What to expect at your Video Assisted Eye Exam

Patient using equipment

Patient intake information & Pretesting

The on-site office technician will record your basic information, ocular, and medical health history. Next, in the pretesting area, the technician will capture patient information about your current prescription, corneal measurements, eye pressure, images and videos of your eyes. The results of these tests are stored in a secure server for your optometrist’s review.

Patient using equipment

High-definition video conferencing with remote technician

Next, the office technician will escort you to the optical exam room. Your technician will notify a remote technician that you are ready for preliminary eye refraction. The remote technician will record any eye complaints for the optometrist to review as part of the optometrist’s eye exam.

Licensed Optometrist performs the Virtually Assisted Eye Exam

Then, your optometrist will appear on the screen ready to communicate with you in real time, answer your questions, and learn about your vision concerns. Your optometrist will have remote control of the phoropter to refine preliminary prescription data, access all your ocular health information, and finalize your eye prescription.

At the conclusion of your exam, the optometrist will advise you of the early detection of health issues, if any, and deliver an accurate vision prescription to you.

These folks are genuinely kind and friendly. They were sweet as could be helping me pick out new gla... sses when I can’t see but a couple inches. Had a nice chat with each person that I worked with. Everyone seems very competent in their jobs of course too. They didn’t make me feel awkward about not wanting to spend much either. We will definitely keep using them!
