Opternative has developed the first online eye exam that delivers a prescription, signed by an ophthalmologist, for glasses and contacts lenses. The exam takes 15 minutes and can be completed on any computer or tablet without the need for a web camera. The service will be offered globally at a fraction of the cost and without the hassles of traditional eye exams.
