COVID-19 is wreaking havoc around the world, and while some businesses were prepared to pivot with remote business models, the customer-facing optical world is facing its own set of unique challenges. Various states have recently forced small businesses, especially in the healthcare industry to close up and some may not be able to keep their doors open for the foreseeable future. Automeyes Optical Solutions, an emerging technology platform making it easy for optical professionals to fit glasses via a digital image, are responding by offering its patent-based platform free of charge.
“Our mission throughout the year is to bring a better visual experience to those who might otherwise not have ready access, so with us of all practicing social distancing, this is the perfect tool for Opticians and ODs since the tool uses technology which replaces the need to see the client in close proximity or even face to face,” said Kurt Gardner, President, and Founder of Automeyes Optical Solutions. “We are experiencing trying times here in America, and if we are able to help any optical business better support its clients during this time, it’s the right thing to do. I see too many people in the optical community struggling to keep their businesses afloat, and Automeyes can help them keep working to support patients and their livelihood.”
What is Automeyes?
Automeyes’ simple eyewear fitting tool, allowing to bring mobile flexibility and at-home ease to fit a consumer for their chosen eyewear – all from an image. Again, all in line with social distancing practices. Learn how it works at https://www.automeyes.com/.
What System/Tools Are Needed to Make it Work?
All that is needed, is a laptop, tablet or mobile device with a digital camera – most smartphones have this capability built-in. The brand has already seen current client’s usage increase as many optical shops close their doors due to COVID-19.
“I want everyone to be able to keep thriving in business, especially small optical business owners, and I know Automeyes can help them service their clients, so let’s get started,” Gardner said. “I am opening it up so everyone can take advantage of this during this unique time, so I will personally host 3 training webinars a day to support any new team members using it.”
How to Access Automeyes?
Free access will be granted to any optical facility that is actively treating patients or looking for ways to make ends meets when brick-and-mortar locations need to close or limit close proximity care. Simply email [email protected] for free access.
