About Opternative

Opternative Inc., a Chicago-based healthcare technology company, founded in 2012, has launched the first online refractive eye test that delivers a physician-issued prescription for glasses or contact lenses. The test is interactive and follows the same subjective principles applied in an eye care professional's office where patients are asked to respond to a series of questions based on images presented to them. The software uses a series of vision tests, algorithms and patient medical history to provide ophthalmologists with a clinical decision support tool that enables them to diagnose patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, emmetropia and to prescribe glasses or contacts when appropriate.  With a mission to help the world see and feel better, the Opternative eye test will make vision screening and prescription services accessible and affordable to everyone.
