“As a convenient tool, the user-friendly Vision Check establishes the need for vision correction through a screening test. This innovative offering is customer centric,” Titan managing director Bhaskar Bhat told reporters at a preview of the test facility.
Bangalore: Optical major Titan Eye Plus of Titan Industries on Thursday unveiled a free online test facility on its website www.titaneyeplus.com to check if users need vision correction.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates around 456 million people across India need vision correction as against 3.3 billion worldwide. Of these, about 670 million of them have a form of visual impairment, which can be corrected by eyewear.
The city-based Titan Eye pioneered free zero error eye test facility in the retail segment to consumers by employing optometrists trained at Sankara Nethralaya in Chennai.
“Vision Check will offer people who don’t’ have time to visit their nearest optical store for a screening test of their vision status,” Kant noted.
The five-minute test can be taken by anyone above six years old from the comforts of their home, workplace or cyber cafe. [Source]
