About Digital Eye Exams

A digital eye exam, sometimes referred to as tele-optometry, allows you to receive a comprehensive eye exam at our Austin location performed by a licensed optometrist. The digital eye exam includes the use of a live remote video conference between you and the optometrist for an accurate exam of your eyes at a convenient time for you. More Info >
