How Uprise Helps Achieve Near Contactless Exams

There’s a new age in eye exams - the contactless exam. The pandemic has accelerated this by as much as 700 percent, according to some estimates. This trend has been fueled by greater patient acceptance of the efficacy of video visits, the relaxing of regulatory restrictions on its use, increased payments to health care providers for remote visits and the ongoing need for social distancing. And it can allow people with mobility or health issues to safely get the care they need.

Tele-optometry and contactless exams aims to remove major barriers in accessibility, bridging the gap in service delivery by enabling optometrists to reach patients from remote and/or underserved areas. Tele-optometry offers a solid solution to the ongoing issue of a healthcare professional shortage. It allows patients access to necessary vision interventions and advanced diagnostic tools that can reduce the overall healthcare cost. These are only just a few of the benefits, let’s take a look at what patients can expect from these exams below.
