SMART Vision Labs is promoting its proprietary smart refraction system as a way for eye doctors to become telemedicine providers. When installed in an eyecare practice, the system can provide patients with convenient access to renewal contact lenses or eyeglass prescriptions while generating additional revenue.

There are three steps in Smart Vision Labs’ approach to telemedicine. First, the patient gets a vision exam through Smart Vision Labs’ SVOne wavefront autorefraction system, which is based on precise wavefront aberrometry. Next, a physician reviews patient history and refraction data to provide final prescription. Finally, the patient and the partner location receives a digital copy of the prescription to purchase new glasses or renewal contact lenses.
