HOLBROOK N.Y.—20/20Now, a pioneer and innovator in the tele-optometry sector, this week announced the appointment of Dr. Chad Overman to the chief operating officer role. The move was effective June 1, according to the announcement. Dr. Overman has been with 20/20Now since 2019 in the role of optometric advisor. He now takes over the COO role from Chuck Scott, 20/20Now’s chief executive officer. The 20/20Now platform uses state-of-the-art technology, proprietary software and patented exam processes to deliver comprehensive eye exams to patients. This includes eye health screenings via telehealth, according to the company.

“After three-plus successful and very fulfilling years with 20/20Now, I have learned a great deal about 20/20Now's operating structure and ocular telehealth technology. As such, I feel well prepared to assume my new responsibilities and look forward to pursuing the pattern of growth and organization that is currently in place,” Dr. Overman said.
Immediately prior to joining 20/20Now, Dr. Overman ran a successful consulting company and prior to that worked at Walmart and Sam's Club for almost 21 years. His responsibilities within Walmart included: independent OD, regional talent specialist, senior manager of recruiting for health and wellness and director of professional relations for health and wellness.
The 20/20Now technology gives optical retailers the ability to offer patients ocular telehealth eye exams with live doctor consultations, enabling the patients to buy new glasses and/or contacts the same day. The company said it is currently operating in 30 states and about to open up in several others.
Dr. Overman will support 20/20Now's management and 20/20 vision services by providing strategic day-to-day leadership and support optometric services.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Chad join our leadership team,” Scott said. “Dr. Chad is an experienced optometrist who also has a strong background in corporate development, and practice management. He brings a unique skill set to our team and we are excited for Chad to leverage his knowledge and energy to influence our management team.”
Dr. Overman received his Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry.
