Versant Health and Transitions Optical Partner on Vision Simulator

LINTHICUM, MD, November 27, 2018 – Versant Health, a leading national managed eye health and vision plan company, has partnered with Transitions Optical to create a Vision Simulator to help people see how failing eye health can impact your vision.

The Vision Simulator was sent to 10,000 vision care providers to use in their practice to educate their patients. With this tool, viewers can see through the eyes of someone living with glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy, presbyopia, glare, and macular degeneration.

“Vision impairment are something we all know could happen, but many of us don’t realize the real impact it can have until it actually occurs,” says Nate Kenyon, VP Provider Operations & Support, Versant Health. “The Vision Simulator allows patients to see for themselves ‘what if’ long before the reality of any potential vision impairment sets in, as well as allowing caregivers to see for themselves the impact vision impairments are having on their loved ones.”

“Through the use of virtual reality goggles, mobile 360, or simply from your desktop, the Vision Simulator lets you see, first-hand, exactly how everyday activities would be impacted by eye disease,” says Jonathan Ormsby, Transitions Optical. “It also includes information about what people can do to prevent eye diseases later in life.”
