Comprehensive Eye Exams are Best Done by Your Indianapolis Eye Doctor

Last May, a new service was launched that allows people to have their eyes tested in the comfort of their own homes. Blink, the name of the service, is being dubbed as the Uber for opticians, and was developed by the Camera Culture group at MIT’s Media Lab and its Somerville offshoot, EyeNetra. How it Works Blink schedules appointments with clients seven days a week within 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Once an appointment is set, the service will come to a patient’s home and perform a vision test using portable diagnostic devices for approximately 20 minutes. The tests cost $75 and are administered by a “visioneer”,not an optometrist. Visioneers are background-checked and trained to collect the necessary information from patients and provide good customer service. They are not authorized to provide eye treatment and advice.
