Sarah's Story
Avoiding Traffic
“When I found Opternative, everything changed. Not only could I afford it, but I was able to throw away the contacts I’d worn for way too long. Best of all, I was able to avoid L.A. traffic while I did the exam at home in half an hour. It’s such a relief that there’s something out there for people like me with a tight budget and crazy schedule.” - Sarah
Dana's Story
Skipping the Sitter
“When you have to take kids with you to an appointment, it's a struggle. At home, I can turn on a movie and take my exam in peace without the stress of kids misbehaving. The test was fast, easy, and ready for me to take whenever I had enough time. So, I save myself the hassle, I save money on the exam, AND I save money on gas and possibly a babysitter.” - Dana
