EYEmergencyMD’s mission is to bridge the gap between eye physicians and patients who require acute eye care and screening. An acute care solution for eye issues does not currently exist, and the small number of trained eye physicians makes the need even more pronounced. Patients are relegated to busy emergency rooms or urgent cares which often lack ready access to eye specialists. In exchange for inefficient, less specialized care, patients pay exorbitant costs for visits that typically don’t resolve the problem and require additional follow up with an eye physician during normal business hours.

What’s EYEmergencyMD’s solution? First, we’re creating eye screening centers in places people frequent, eliminating the common excuses that eye care is not easy to find or a priority. When patients present with complex eye issues, we help them find and access the care they need. Second, we offer immediate care from board certified ophthalmologists, 24/7/365 from the palm of your hand, anywhere you can access a network connection.

Simply offering a service does not create such an affect.  A company must deliver this service at top notch quality standards and with added value, efficiency, and convenience.  Although we are first to offer nationwide acute eye care diagnosis and treatment, the ocular screening market has been around for quite some time.  EMD is approaching this market with fresh eyes and visual clarity, seeking to expand and improve the process for the benefit of the patient.  Namely, ensuring patients obtain follow up care by facilitating connections to local ophthalmologists.  

Just as passenger cars for hire were once known as “catching a cab” but is now are known almost exclusively as “ubering”, EYEmergencyMD seeks to become a household name, synonymous with acute eye care and screenings. The telemedicine industry is here and it doesn’t seem to be losing momentum.  We hope you will take advantage of this offering in assuring healthy vision for a lifetime.

Life with an acute eye problem just got a lot easier in all 50 states. Why?  Because vision matters.

EYEmergencyMD is proud to announce that we have been recognized by the American Telemedicine Association as recipient of the 2019 President’s Award for Innovation in Remote Healthcare Delivery.  We hope this is just one of many ways we will be able to impact the future of eye care delivery and access.

Visit us at www.EYEmergencyMD.com whenever you or a loved one has an eye issue.

Routine Calibration Checks Help Your Practice Run Smoothly and Mean Better Patient Care!

During my consulting visits with practices, I often ask the technical staff when they last checked the calibration on the applanation tonometers and manual keratometers. The response given is “sometimes it’s done” or “it’s never been done”. We check these instruments weekly (the recommendation is monthly) and find that the units aren't calibrating correctly.  We recently had two applanation tonometers off by 4mmHg. We have also detected a 0.50 diopter difference during the keratometer calibration process a few times. The IOL Master and optical coherence tomography units are other equipment types that should be routinely checked for accuracy.

  • I have loyal employees. I care about their careers and their futures. What will happen to them when I leave?

  • How do I list my ophthalmology practice for sale without jeopardizing the health of my business?  I want buyers to find out about my practice, but I don't want patients to think that I'm closing my business and go elsewhere.  I want them here for the future owner.
