While practicing optometry, Dr. Steven Lee, Founder and Chief Science Officer of Visibly, had a patient who frequently missed eye appointments. When the patient finally made it in for an appointment she asked him, “Why can’t we just do this at home?” That was his lightbulb moment. He immediately went home and began building the concept behind Visibly’s online vision test.
Founded in 2012, Visibly is a Chicago-based healthcare technology company that creates digital eye care technologies to help the world see better. Our online vision test allows patients to renew their prescription anywhere, anytime. We also offer eye care providers, eyewear retailers, and other organizations customizable software solutions to enable a better patient and consumer experience.
Each year, fewer than half of US adults get vision screenings or eye exams due to barriers like time, cost, and inconvenience. Over 50 million U.S. adults have not had an eye exam in the past two years, and millions have never had an exam. This can lead to trouble seeing in their daily lives when reading, driving, and doing other important daily activities. This is why Visibly's vision is to create a world where eye care is available to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
We also recently rebranded the company under the Visibly name. Hear from our CEO and Founder as to why in the video below.
