About

Insanely easy to use, incredibly accurate, saves time, saves money. 

The EyeQue Insight™: 

  • Screens vision for 20/20 to 20/400 in under 3 minutes, providing exact measures of single and dual eye performance
  • Creates a digital vision history where a change indicates that a doctor’s visit would be advised 
  • Tests your current glasses or contacts to determine if an updated prescription may be required
  • Instantly records and securely stores results, making data available to share with others
  • One EyeQue Insight can be shared with many people, making it a value for families and suitable for testing large groups
  • Runs in two modes, simple straightforward "adult" mode, and gamified "kids" mode for children

The EyeQue Insight is a professional-grade visual acuity screener that determines whether someone is seeing 20/20 or less (AKA 6 over 6 around the world) within minutes

Combined with the myEyeQue VA app, the goggles attach to your smartphone to reveal what is considered an industry standard for vision testing, a “tumbling E eye chart”, and virtualizes 20 feet/6 meters distance to ensure accuracy time after time

The self-administered test is super EASY (just swipe in the direction of the “E”) and FAST (under 3 minutes for right eye, left eye, AND both eyes), the randomized and gamified experience ensures that everyone stays engaged. Test results are instantly stored in the EyeQue Cloud™ to help you keep track of vision changes over time.

Visual acuity is a fancy term used to describe clarity and sharpness of vision. If someone sees 20/20 that means he/she has normal vision as defined by optometrists. If, for example, someone has a 20/40 visual acuity, it means that "he/she must stand 20 feet from an object to see what someone with perfect vision can see from 40 feet away," hence less than perfect visual acuity.

What eye doctors are saying about the EyeQue Insight: 

We went to Santana Row in San Jose, California on a beautiful Saturday morning and chatted up random shoppers. The results and reactions are genuine, no one was paid/compensated for their comments.

"I had Lasik eye surgery... when they tested my eyes I definitely remembered the pattern...This I felt like really tested you." -- Rachel, 26

The EyeQue Insight functions as a digitized eye chart. To use it, simply attach the goggles to your smartphone (EyeQue Insight currently supports 800+ smartphones around the world), and swipe in the direct of the letter "E" on your smartphone screen. The sequence of the letter "E"s are randomized so there's no memorization at play, and you'll get the most accurate results every time.

Here's the tutorial! (PS It's only a 26 seconds long)

Everyone. Children with rapidly changing eyesight, adults who want to stay informed on their vision changes, and those in need of vision care in the developing world.

Children with rapidly changing eyesight can benefit tremendously from the EyeQue Insight. Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, can develop as early as 6 years old. Using the Insight for just 3 minutes a week will help parents keep track of vision changes, know when to see the eye doctor, and share the results during the eye exam. Have the peace of mind of knowing that your child sees clearly and is not disadvantaged with blurry vision, even if he/she already wears glasses.

Adults who want to stay informed about their vision will also benefit from the EyeQue Insight. A quick and efficient screening tool, the Insight is great for checking current glasses or contacts, following up on Lasik surgery results, and those experiencing fluctuations in their visual acuity (such as glaucoma and diabetes) to know and track changes.

A large proportion of the world population in developing countries lack access to vision care, affecting their quality of life and productivity. The American Ophthalmology Association estimates that by 2050, HALF of the world's population will be nearsighted. Given the magnitude of this global myopia epidemic, the EyeQue Insight is a powerful tool available to charity organizations to quickly screen large groups of people, with the ability and opportunity to improve lives that are deeply affected by uncorrected vision. 

 

The optical goggles represent a complex work of art and technology. Within each set of goggles exist several aspheric optical lenses that de-magnifies the screen, creating the perfect 20-feet distance of the “tumbling E” images in a dark room.

The sleek binocular design is lightweight (less than 8 ounces, not including smartphone), durable, safe, and easy to hold; comes fully assembled with no loose parts.

One-size-fits-all design with PD (pupillary distance) adjustments so one set of goggles can be used for everyone in the family.

Our animated host, Seymour (see-more, get it?), is a fun-loving blue blobby friend that will keep your child engaged in the "kids" mode. He has all kinds of tips to help you take the test.  Adults can use the more straightforward vision test mode.

Compare the traditional static eye chart and our"tumbling E" chart! Insight's eye chart is digitized so the letters are randomly generated. Since there's no memorization at play, the test results are more accurate than ever before.

Testing for each individual eye is just as important, if not more important, than testing how both eyes work together. The development of many vision conditions, such as strabismus (lazy eye) and amblyopia (cross eye), can be accelerated because one of the eyes have a significantly lower visual acuity than the other.

Not familiar with "20/20"? There are other international standards for describing visual acuity and "normal vision". EyeQue supports other international standards for visual acuity, such as 6/6 and logMAR. Customize your reading based on what is standard in your region.

Other than screening for visual acuity (seeing 20/20), the EyeQue Insight is a highly scalable platform that can incorporate many additional vision screening features, such as color vision deficiency (aka color blindness), muscle balance (precursor for conditions such as cross eye), and binocular vision. These functionalities are currently being developed and will be available to Insight users in 2018.

Smartphone Support

The EyeQue Insight supports all iOS and Android phones with more than 300ppi and screen size larger than 4.7" (11.93cm). Currently, over 800 smartphones around the world meet this minimum requirement. Does your phone qualify? Go to our webpage and scroll down to the bottom-- We are still expanding the list!

Risks and challenges

With a successful and fulfilled Kickstarter campaign (the EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker, Feb 2017) under our belt, we are very confident that we will deliver the EyeQue Insight to our backers on time. Our device manufacturer has exceeded expectations with product quality and manufacturing capabilities; we are grateful to have a partner that cares about our business and customers as much as we do.

As we learned tremendously from our campaign and product rollout earlier this year, we have worked diligently to create a seamless, easy, and fun experience for kids and adults alike. Our team constantly strives for improvements to the software, and increasing functionalities to screen for more vision conditions such as color vision deficiency and muscle balance anomalies. In addition, we are collaborating with optometrists to perfect our product and to gain the trust of the eye are community.
