RightEye is entering a new partnership that could lead to its vision tests entering more eye doctors’ offices.

The Bethesda, Md.–based company received an investment from VSP Global Partners, which has a network of 38,000 eye doctors, according to a release. Terms were not disclosed.

As Technical.ly DC reported, RightEye provides eye tracking tests that are analyzed using the company’s cloud-based software platform. The system designed to process results of the tests quickly. RightEye has worked with a number of partners like Major League Baseball and the military.

The recent deal with VSP Global Partners will allow the two companies to explore using the system as part of optometry exams. Currently, about 50 doctors in VSP’s network use RightEye.

“We…know that VSP network doctors are interested in technology that could lead to better patient engagement and retention,” said VSP Global Board Member Matthew Alpert, OD, in a statement. “A tool like RightEye creates an opportunity to further strengthen that doctor-patient experience, while continuing to underscore the value that eye care plays in an individual’s life.”

VSP has an innovation lab known as “The Shop.” The two companies plan to conduct research there to explore future work together. VSP will also have a seat on RightEye’s board of directors.
