It’s easier than ever not to leave your apartment.
You can now add “optometrist” to your list of “need not visit.”
Blink is a just-launched, on-demand eye-testing service, wherein a “visioneer” comes to your house to conduct a 20-minute eye exam.
Now, keep in mind: This isn’t a full-on optometric exam (which is recommended for all adults, regardless of eye health, every two years). It’s basically a quick check for getting a current eyeglass prescription, so you can, ya know, get some new Warby Parkers.
After you book an appointment online, a trained Blink employee comes to your home to administer an eye test with basically a tiny version of the massive equipment you’d find in a traditional office.
Within 24 hours, an optometrist will review your test remotely and recommend a course of action, like an adjusted prescription strength. From there, you’ll be sent a unique link to retrieve your prescription online--should you need one. Heads up that Blink does not currently accept insurance, and costs $75 a home visit.
