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.
