LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y.—DigitalOptometrics, LLC, a provider of remote eyecare examination solutions, has announced that it has surpassed 2 million remote comprehensive eye exams. DigitalOptometrics' remote eye exam platform empowers optometrists to conduct comprehensive eye exams remotely, integrating video conferencing with remote operation of ophthalmic equipment. With coverage available seven days a week from anywhere, the platform ensures patients receive timely and quality care from licensed optometrists, even in the absence of an on-site eyecare professional, according to the company.

"We are thrilled to reach this monumental milestone of 2 million remote eye exams," said Howard S. Fried, founder, optometrist and president of DigitalOptometrics. "It signifies a paradigm shift in the adoption of remote health care services, particularly in the field of optometry. Our platform not only improves efficiency and cost-effectiveness for eyecare providers, but also enhances accessibility and convenience for patients, regardless of geographical location or language barriers."

In addition to surpassing 2 million remote eye exams, DigitalOptometrics continues to expand. The company recently introduced DOT—DigitalOptometrics Translate, a real-time translation feature between patients and optometrists in 16 languages, further breaking down language barriers and ensuring quality patient care, the company said.

"We believe every individual deserves access to high-quality eyecare, regardless of linguistic or geographical constraints," added Dr. Ryan Wiggins. "With DOT, we are bridging care gaps and reaching a broader patient population speaking English as a second language, ultimately improving health outcomes and enhancing the patient experience."
