Visionix USA recently entered a strategic alliance with 20/20NOW to help bring cost-effective, in-office, quality synchronous tele-optometry comprehensive eye exams and ocular telemedicine closer to more patients throughout the United States.
According to Matt Vulich, VP National Accounts at Visionix Americas, “20/20NOW shares the same passion as Visionix in helping Eye Care Professionals (ECPs) grow and scale their business. Together, we will help optometry practices and optical retailers offer comprehensive eye exams at scale. With this strategic move, we can now offer our customers the option to grow through tele-optometry.”
20/20NOW helps eye care practices and optical retailers successfully launch and operate tele-optometric services in over 30 states. This alliance allows Visionix to offer 20/20NOW’s Tele-Optometry platform with VIsionix’s integrated, advanced, accurate, and user-friendly devices to offer world-class tele-optometry.
Visionix will remain the direct access to all Visionix products. However, those who would like to explore an alternative business model now have telehealth experts working, in tandem, to understand state, legal, and operational considerations to establish a telehealth-enabled clinic. Combining the strength of these two highly experienced teams, ECPs will be able to launch modern, multi-location opticals and practices that utilize teleoptometry.
