It’s difficult for a person to find the time needed to schedule any kind of doctor’s appointment, let alone an appointment with their eye doctor. As one of the five senses, people know that vision is important to their daily lives, yet it tends to be one of the more neglected basic health issues.
In a recent anecdotal study done by 2020, patients listed, ‘time,’ ‘cost,’ and ‘not thinking about it’ as the top 3 deterrents to getting a regular eye exam. Mobile healthcare addresses these issues by making the solution accessible and easy to utilize. For example, 2020 On-site offers the following benefits:
