Chicago, IL, June 01, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Opternative, a company revolutionizing eye care by developing the world’s first online eye exam, is launching an Indiegogo campaign in hopes of furthering its efforts.
Opternative, the brainchild of Dr. Steven Lee and Aaron Dallek, seeks to make eye care accessible and affordable. For just a fraction of the cost of an in office eye exam visit, Opternative will allow consumers to obtain valid eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions by taking the Opternative Online Eye Exam from the convenience of their own home, office or anywhere computer accessible.
In order to make Opternative a reality, an Indiegogo campaign has been set up to raise funds. Funds will be used to fine-tune the software and technology behind Opternative and allow for testing of the software in order to ensure complete accuracy and ease of use.
The Indiegogo campaign hopes to raise $15,000 and will run for 60 days. For more information log on to www.opternative.com or contact Opternative’s Aaron Dallek at (312) 307-3223. To contribute please visit the Indiegogo Campaign at: http://igg.me/at/Opternative.
