IBIS-Connect; a part of the future of optometry

The hustle and bustle of New York was the perfect place to host Vision Expo East. The liveliness of the streets matched the energy inside the Javits Centre over Expo weekend where professionals came together to see what’s new and upcoming for the eye care sector.

IbisVision was there to showcase our platform, IBIS-Connect, a solution that allows optometrists to test patients anywhere, at any time. We also got the chance to see what else is going on in the market and speak with other companies in our space. This allowed us to further our understanding of the industry and where it’s going, resulting in a more detailed outlook for the future. There were many positive takeaways for us, and the show gave us a whole host of new companies looking at our solution. We’re delighted our platform attracted so much attention and we were happy to hear from many attendees that IBIS-Connect is leading the way in remote vision testing.

As we discovered at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas, and now again at Vision Expo East, there remains a struggle with the availability of eye doctors across the country. This is something IbisVision is exploring in greater detail to support the market further. We also noticed more discussions around the need to have a flexible solution that can work in whatever way an organisation requires. For example, a solution where the patient can be in practice, but the eye doctor is elsewhere or vice versa. This is the type of flexibility that IbisVision can offer as the optometrist and patient can be wherever is suitable for them; we were happy to demonstrate this to those who visited us at our booth and show our remote testing capabilities.

Our team were lucky enough to speak to companies who are looking to implement telemedicine solutions in the US and further afield such as Canada and Latin America. What was obvious was the appetite for telemedicine is beginning to grow more in optometry than ever before and the market knowledge of it is increasing.

What’s next?

We have some great conversations to continue as well as pick up with some of the amazing eye care professionals and suppliers we met with at the show. Vision Expo East was a great place to discuss our platform, future collaborations and where we go next in the sector. A huge thank you to everyone who came to visit us at our booth. We were once again in The Panorama neighbourhood which was a hub of the latest technologies and innovations, the perfect place for our flourishing technology.
