Modern Day OptX now offers vision exams during all business hours with the Smart Vision Labs telemedicine platform.

New York, NYAugust 31, 2016, Smart Vision Labs (, creators of smart mobile autorefraction devices for vision testing, welcomes Modern Day OptX to their growing network of NYC stores offering Smart Vision Exams. The Smart Vision Exam uses the best technology developed for LASIK to measure a person’s prescription along with mobile technology and sends the data to a remote network of eye doctors who provide updated eyeglass prescriptions.

Modern Day OptX ( located at 575 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10024 provides luxury handmade eyeglasses and sunglasses, along with premium quality contact lenses. Smart Vision Labs, founded in 2013 by Yaopeng Zhou and Marc Albanese, is transforming the way people test their vision, disrupting the eye care market and expanding vision care to ensure more people have easy access to updated prescriptions.

“Modern Day OptX is the sort of optical partner we look for when rolling out our telemedicine platform. Their modern space, fashionable options and appreciation of quality eye care pairs with our new technology to position them as a leader in the optical business said Yaopeng Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Smart Vision Labs. In our first day of operations they referred 3 patients for full eye health exams, based on what they noticed during the Smart Vision Exam, and together we were able to provide updated prescriptions to a dozen other customers. Upper West Side residents now get high quality optical options, convenient vision testing along with updated eyeglasses prescriptions all in one location,”

The Smart Vision Labs vision test uses autorefraction technology with a proprietary eye care telemedicine platform, allowing doctors to analyze vision test results and other data without having to be on-site. The doctor can write a digital eyeglass prescription for a patient or make a recommendation for a full eye health exam where appropriate.

Optical stores that don’t always have the ability to offer a prescription for glasses can now use the Smart Vision Labs platform to grow their business. Optical stores no longer have to send customers away for a prescription, but can service them and create a better user experience and provide high quality glasses.

In the United States alone, 240 million Americans are in need of vision correction, but only 114 million eye exams are performed yearly. On average there is one eye doctor for every 5,000 people. Personalizing telemedicine promotes ownership of one’s own medical data, and with Smart Vision Labs, prescriptions are always accessible with a click of a button.
