About Opternative:

Opternative's mission is to help the world see and feel better.

Our technology will assist licensed eye care professionals in delivering eye care by increasing access to refractive eye exams and lowering costs. 75 of people worldwide need vision correction, and in the US alone 1 in 6 (roughly 50 million people) have never seen an ophthalmologist or optometrist. Current eye exam technology was originally invented in the 1800s, and it hasn't seen any significant innovation since 1921. Eye exams are inconvenient and many people don't have access to an ophthalmologist or optometrist in the first place. Online eye exams will help the 2.5 billion people around the world who have never had an eye exam. Access to eye care will radically change this underserved population's quality of life and prevent people from going blind. Opternative will provide billions of people their first eye exam, and be a catalyst for telehealth adoption across the entire healthcare industry.

There is one doctor for every million people in the world, which means many with poor vision are going underserved and untreated. Our online eye exam solution will provide many with a prescription that allows them to see clearly for the first time. Opternative is innovating by creating a solution in eye care that no one thought was possible. We are not just disrupting a market, we are going to help the entire world see and feel better.
