*Opternative's service does not include any type of eye health exam. Learn more below.

Opternative is not a replacement for a comprehensive eye health examination. Opternative's licensed ophthalmologists use Opternative’s online technology to evaluate a patient's visual acuity and a portion of the ocular health profile, diagnose refractive error, and issue a prescription for corrective eyewear, where clinically appropriate. Opternative's services are limited to patients between the ages of 18 and 55 who are in good health. All examinations are conducted and all prescriptions are issued based on the independent clinical judgment of an ophthalmologist. Because Opternative's services are not a replacement for an eye health examination, we encourage everyone to obtain a comprehensive eye health exam at least once every 2 years. We prohibit patients from taking an Opternative exam more than 4 consecutive years without certifying that they have received a comprehensive eye health exam first.
