Can’t Get to Us? We Can Come to You Virtually Through EyecareLive

Whether you’re due for an eye exam and new glasses or you think you might have pinkeye, it’s time to see your eye doctor. But with COVID-19 sweeping the nation, the more you can stay at home, the better.

That’s why we’re offering EyecareLive®, a state-of-the-art virtual eye appointment service. 

At Paragon Eye Associates in Arlington and Mansfield, Texas, our expert optometrists and ophthalmologists are committed to protecting your eye health and your overall health.

If you can’t make it into our office, or you prefer to stay at home, find out how EyecareLive can help you get the eye care you need.

What is EyecareLive?

EyecareLive is state-of-the-art software that allows you to connect with your eye doctor through a secure app. We can offer most standard eye care services, including:

Visual acuity tests

During a visual acuity test, we measure the clarity of your vision. It helps us determine if you need a new or updated prescription for glasses or contact lenses. We also offer virtual contact lens consultations. 

Amsler grid tests

An Amsler grid test helps us screen for problems with your macula, such as macular degeneration, an age-related eye disease that reduces your central vision. 

Non-emergent conditions

We can also diagnose non-emergent eye conditions such as dry eye, pinkeye (conjunctivitis), blepharitis (inflamed eyelids), sties, and other types of eye irritation. 

EyecareLive is easy to use

You begin by downloading the app onto your smartphone and creating your account. There are a few sections to complete, including personal information, insurance details, and payment information. All of your personal information is secure and treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Then, you schedule your virtual visit. Your eye doctor calls you through the app at your scheduled appointment time.

A virtual eye exam isn’t quite like being in the office. However, the innovative technology allows us to evaluate your eye health, identify any corrective lens prescription needs, and diagnose other eye problems. 

EyecareLive makes eye appointments convenient for you

EyecareLive provides access to your eye doctor at your convenience. You don’t need to take time off work, arrange for child care, or fight traffic to make it to the office. If you’re feeling under-the-weather or are concerned about the spread of disease, you can stay at home where you feel safe.

Virtual eye care allows you to take control of your eye health. The software includes self-assessments, so you can check for some symptoms in advance of meeting with your eye doctor, and track any changes in your eye health.

In addition to all of these benefits, EyecareLive can also save you money. Easy and convenient access to your eye doctor can help you avoid trips to urgent care or the emergency room for issues like pinkeye or uncomfortable sties.

If you want to know more about EyecareLive and whether it’s right for you, call our offices in Arlington or Mansfield, Texas, or send us a message here on our website. We can answer your questions and help you schedule your virtual eye care appointment.
