There are an estimated 4.2 billion people around the world that need eye glasses. 2.5 billion people don't have access to them.

80% of these people, 2 billion, live in less economically developed countries– further hindering or preventing access to care for their visual impairments.

This is tragic. We're working to change this.

RingMD, a global community of local providers.

RingMD is trusted by thousands of doctors, therapists, specialists, and wellness experts from across the globe.

Hundreds of thousands of people from 50+ countries have used our directory to discover a local therapist, doctor, or wellness expert.

How it works

Step 1: Patient registration

The patient, with the assistance of the trained local technician, creates a profile so their information can be saved and a prescription can be issued.

 

Step 2: Visual acuity test

The patient then undergoes a basic eye test, A.K.A "Visual Acuity Test," to determine the smallest letters they can read from a standardized chart. If you've been to an optometrist's office, you should be familiar with this. This test is done for each eye.

Step 3: Refractor test

The patient uses our auto-refractor device to test for the extent that their eyes need to be corrected with a prescription.

Step 4: Review results

The results from the visual acuity and refractor tests are displayed on a tablet device and sent to an optometrist on the RingMD platform for review.

Step 5: Connect to an optometrist

The optometrist explains the situation and answers any questions the patient may have.

Step 6: Prescription determined

The prescription is finalized after consulting with the optometrist. The glasses with prescription lenses are then made and delivered on the spot.
