Online refraction panel: Keep your patients by providing telehealth

Online refraction panel: Keep your patients by providing telehealth
September 26, 2016

LAS VEGAS – “Digital eye exams are a huge opportunity for the industry,” Aaron Dallek, CEO and co-founder of Opternative, said during a panel discussion on remote refractions here at Vision Expo West.

“This is an opportunity for you to take ownership of your relationship with your patient and provide them with the service they’re looking for and the quality of care that you feel is appropriate,” he said. “The best situation is if you were the doctor providing the telehealth. You know when they can do the refraction at home or when they should come in. If they move, you can still keep that relationship with them and work with their local doctor.”
