Opternative launches mobile-only vision test

Opternative vision test

Opternative unveiled what it says is the first web-based, voice-activated vision test, allowing users to renew their prescription online using only a mobile device, even if their prescription has changed.

The technology relies on voice recognition software from Google, IBM Watson, and Microsoft to enable an easy and secure voice guided vision test. It understands a patient’s voice commands and efficiently moves them through the less than 15 minute online vision test, allowing a seamless conversation to occur.

“To build upon our vision of making eye care available to anyone, anywhere, anytime, we built the first web-based, conversational test that can be taken solely on a mobile browser,” Ayo Jimoh, CTO of Opternative, said in a statement. “The technology helps elevate and increase access to vision care for patients across the globe.”

The mobile only device test is a complement to Opternative’s existing dual device solution using a computer and a smartphone.

Founded in 2012, Opternative creates digital eye care technologies that enable patient choice and convenience while providing doctors and retailers the ability to create awesome user experiences.
