Opternative Launches Mobile-Only Device Prescription Technology

Sept. 12, 2018

Opternative, Inc., has introduced what it calls the first web-based, voice-activated vision test. Users can now renew their prescription online using only a mobile device, even if their prescription has changed.

The technology uses voice recognition software from Google, IBM Watson and Microsoft to enable a voice-guided vision test. It is designed to understand a patient’s voice commands, and to efficiently move them through the less than 15-minute online vision test, allowing a seamless conversation to occur.

“To build upon our vision of making eyecare available to anyone, anywhere, anytime, we built the first web-based, conversational test that can be taken solely on a mobile browser,” says Ayo Jimoh, CTO of Opternative. “The technology helps elevate and increase access to vision care for patients across the globe.”

The mobile-only device test is a complement to Opternative’s existing dual device solution using a computer and a smartphone.
