A global pandemic is a risky, complicated situation that can impact people from all walks of life. Whether you are a small business owner or a school teacher, this pandemic has influenced your life and livelihood. Fortunately, technology has made the situation a little more bearable. It has allowed people to communicate, work from home, learn new things, and find suitable entertainment. At Vizavance, we have used technology to ensure a child’s eye health isn’t lost in all of the chaos.
Using Technology to Power Eye Health
Vizavance provides free children’s eye exam to thousands of children in Oklahoma. We help parents keep track of their child’s eye health, identify vision issues, and make sure the kids get treatment early enough to mitigate severe problems. Maintaining sound eye health and getting prompt treatment has a positive impact on their child’s development.
As we deal with thousands of children, we recently moved to a cloud-based system to keep track of all kids. This system stores patient information, eye concerns, prescriptions, records of follow-up appointments, and so much more. It has allowed us to maintain a strong connection with the community in Oklahoma, even during these trying times.
Our Cloud-Based System is called IRIS
Our cloud-based system IRIS has detailed records of more than 100,000 children. The database records their current eye health, pressing concerns, future prognosis, appointments, and other such information. During a children’s eye exam, a screener can easily access individual records to familiarize themselves with the child’s current state.
Our system has helped screeners identify more than 12,000 underlying complications since it was launched. During the pandemic, we use this system to keep parents informed and ensure they pay attention to pending appointments or prescriptions.
Eye Health While Practicing Social Distancing
Social distancing is the best way to control the spread of the virus as much as possible. However, this doesn’t mean you should ignore other concerns like eye health. While many children don’t need immediate assistance, some need treatment as early as possible. Our cloud-based system keeps track of important data.
We provide free children’s vision test in Oklahoma and will resume regular testing immediately after the pandemic slows down. Our team will make sure parents, schools, and other concerned individuals are informed when a free testing session is scheduled so they can make an appointment immediately. Our system will prioritize children who need special attention.
We urge parents to get free children’s eye test regularly to keep track of their kid’s vision health. We will do our part by maintaining diligent records of all findings so screeners can spot issues without delay and start treatment promptly. Our exams are the first step in spotting a problem. You will need to schedule an appointment with a qualified optometrist for further treatment.
