On-Demand Vision Testing Offered by Blink

2

Is your vision blurry? According to Jeanine Graves OD,  people have a tendency to avoid going to the eye doctor for regular vision testing due to long wait times. Blink is a new company that aims to provide on-demand vision testing.

Utilizing an app and specialized equipment that is small enough to fit in a suitcase, Blink allows users to check their vision in their home instead of going to a doctor’s office. This isn’t done completely by the user as a “visioneer” will be dispatched to a person’s home to conduct the screening.

A “visioneer” is not like a normal doctor and will simply ask a person basic eye-related questions, such as their current prescription. Using the Blink app and view-finder device, quick and easy tests are performed to correctly assess a person’s current eyesight needs.

Using a device called Netra, data is gathered on a person’s eyesight before being moved to the Netropter device, which will offer the user a way to test out their recommended prescription to make sure they are able to see clearly.

Blink is providing tests in New York with a cost of $75. Currently, the company can only prescribe eye glasses and is working on a solution to correctly measure a person’s eyes to offer contact lens prescriptions.

    This is fantastic! Recently, my sister told me about this amazing book that
    claims to teach you how to exercise your eyes so that they will
    naturally see 20/20 again (WWW.QUANTUMVISIONS.INFO) I
    do all exercises everyday for about 15 minutes and I noticed that I can
    read and drive without glasses just after 2 weeks… I just took an eye
    test for my drivers license and passed without a problem. I don’t do
    all of the exercises but I’m always conscious of ways to practice during
    my daily routine. It works.
