CALGARY, Sept. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Eyelogic Systems Inc. is pleased to
announce an agreement with 20/20 Vision Center, LLC for exclusive
distribution rights in the United States for remotely operated units.
20/20 is aggressively pursuing an online eye testing application where
technicians and doctors from a centralized call center will perform eye
testing on patients across the United States. The 10 year agreement,
with a one-time renewal option, calls for a minimum purchase of 940
units over the initial term, with at least 20 units purchased during
the first year.
Mark McDonald, President of Eyelogic, says "We are very excited to be
working directly with 20/20 to bring online testing to millions of
Americans. Online testing is an exciting development which has the
potential to change the industry. We are very pleased 20/20 choose our
world leading technology as a core component."
Dr. Richard Ombres, 20/20's Medical Director, estimates over 200 million
of the U.S. population have refractive errors that are correctable with
prescription glasses or contact lenses. "The critical first part of the
eye exam, so often overlooked, is an accurate refraction," says Dr.
Ombres, "Eyelogic's proven refractive algorithm, which is completed
through objective and subjective refraction, is failsafe and highly
accurate. It consistently gives us the best visual acuities obtainable
with an optimum new optical prescription for eyeglasses and contact
Dr. Ombres went on to say, "This technology is a breakthrough for the
millions of patients who want quick access to simple and accurate
refractions in between their regular eye health visits. However,
refraction is only a part of a complete eye exam and these tests do not
replace regular eye health exams performed by a qualified Optometrist
or Ophthalmologist." McDonald agrees, "Since our inception, we've
consistently educated patients about refraction only testing. Ensuring
every patient knows the difference between refraction and an eye health
exam allows them make an informed decision about their individual
20/20's Communication Director, Dr. Joseph Seriani O.D., said 20/20 is
currently implementing licensing agreements with optical dispensaries,
primary care physicians and pharmacies to make refractions more
accessible, convenient, affordable and accurate. "There is a very large
market for online testing. With our system, the eye doctor is always
in. Morning, afternoon or evening, seven days a week. No appointment
necessary," touts Dr. Seriani.
The first installations are scheduled for completion in November of this
