Mobile Eye Care App Seeing Big Public and Press Interest

Mobile Eye Care App Seeing Big Public and Press InterestAll eyes are on EyeXam, a red-hot mobile eye care app with over a million free downloads to date.

On Monday, the innovators behind the innovative app announced it was just featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer in its popular ‘Real Money’ series.

The segment headlined a family using the EyeXam app on their smartphones and tablets.

Family members downloaded it for free, took a free self-guided vision screening, found a local eye care provider and saved money on their eye care purchases.

“It’s an honor to be featured in this renowned ABC World News with Diane Sawyer broadcast,” says Dr. Nikki Iravani, an optometrist and founder/CEO of EyeXam. “It was especially encouraging that the producers and team at ABC discovered the EyeXam mobile app and sought us out.”

One of the tips ABC reporter Paula Faris emphasized involved the free vision screening on the EyeXam app.  The purpose of the screening is to motivate consumers to visit an eye care professional, as the family’s mother did when she visited a local Vision Source office, a VSP provider, for a comprehensive eye exam.

The app also helps users find an eye doctor, make an appointment, see promotions and communicate with the doctor.

“The attention we received is a testament to the app’s popularity and to the exceptional value it provides consumers and eye care professionals so hopefully many more people will download the app and benefit from everything it offers,” Iravani says.
