Sightseers Ophthalmology Services is a mobile medical business that provides concierge vision and ophthalmic services to individuals in Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided millions of previously uninsured patients with medical coverage, which is causing increased demand for primary and specialty care services, in addition to higher premiums for those who have historically maintained an insured status. A result of the ACA is overcrowding; patients are having more difficulty getting access to care, and are experiencing long wait times in clinic when they actually do get an appointment. Concierge medicine is becoming more popular as many patients are finding that increased costs and inconvenient access to care are not worth their time and money. Newport Beach and Huntington Beach are home to a population who may prefer concierge eye services, and be able to meet the expense of them, if needed. Sightseers is an affordable way to have access to same-day or next-day appointments; and, moreover, we come directly to the patient. Whether the patient has difficulty with transportation, a conflicting work schedule, or if he or she simply does not want to travel to and wait in a busy ophthalmology clinic, Sightseers’ business plan proves that convenient and high quality services can benefit both the patient and the provider.
