In the old days, if you felt like your vision was going downhill, you had to go see the eye doctor and have them test your vision, which is pretty expensive, then you had to go to a specialized store to buy your glasses.
Well, it’s the 21st century, and I had to go to CES to get my eyes checked.
What is EyeQue VisionCheck
Now you can also test your vision at home thanks to EyQue, which means that you can test your vision, determine what kind of glasses you need and then buy them online. This is made possible by EyeQue’s VisionCheck, which won a CES 2019 innovation award. It’s a device that starts at $29.99. It checks your vision and you will never lose your vision results. All you have to do is use your smartphone and the VisionTracker to measure.
The EyeQue Insight
This feels more like the vision tests at the doctor. You basically swipe on the phone which direction the 3 prongs are facing (E, 3, M, W). Make your best guess until it’s completed. This will then give you an idea of your visual acuity for each eye, then both eyes.
Add in the special glasses that will generate your Eyeglass points. You’ll get the numbers for your eyeglass prescription: sphere, cylinder, and axis. Use that info to order yourself the right pair of glasses online. You can track your vision over time after that.
The Insight will be available later this year.
Keep in mind – this does not replace going to the eye doctor – they can tell you so much more than what these tests do. However, by performing these tests at home, the results improve accuracy as over 90% (from users claims). They are as good or better than their previous prescription glasses.
I Test My Eyes at CES
I use both the VisionCheck, and Insight to test my vision. I found that I need new glasses, as my left eye has degrated a little. But then, I knew that already.
Just download the app and the Personal Vision Tracker can be shared with family and friends, with each user having their own subscription and personal results. This is a game changer for the eyeglasses-industry.
