We’re just getting started. Yet, this November we’ve already been recognized by two prestigious firms focused on breakthrough technologies and design innovations.

The annual CES Innovation Awards, celebrates outstanding product design and engineering in brand-new consumer technology products. EyeQue was deemed the most impressive product in the Fitness, Sports, and Biotech category. CES is the biggest international consumer electronic show in the world, hosted by the prestigious Consumer Technology Association.

The Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation is a leading international competition that honors the best new photonic products on the market. The goal is to bring attention and give recognition to companies that are creating products that make a difference.

 "I love having the power to see if my eyes have changed or if they are just playing tricks on me. I tested my eyes with my glasses on and sure enough, I wasn't seeing clearly! I used the results to order a more effective set of glasses and ahhhhh, I can see!"  -- Nerissa, Newark, CA

“Information is power. I want to know as much as I possibly can. With EyeQue I’ve been tracking my vision every month and have a history right on my phone, so next time I’m at the optometrist's I can compare their records with my own.” -- Daniel, Fremont, CA 

“My eye exams each year show I have perfect vision, but I’ve been getting headaches in the afternoons. EyeQue revealed that during stressful projects at work, my eyesight is strained. With some simple computer glasses, I’ve reduced the strain, eliminated the headaches and still have perfect vision…most of the time!” -- Gloria, Los Altos, CA

"This is very cool, almost like a game!"-- James, San Jose

“Thank you EyeQue! My eyes have been so tired lately. I made an appointment with my eye doctor but it is 6 weeks away. I was able to get an EyeQue miniscope, take a few tests and my new glasses just arrived!" -- Anna, San Jose, CA

“I take pretty good care of myself, see dentists twice a year, doctor’s annually and make sure to see the optometrist every other year. EyeQue allows me to track changes in my eyesight in between office visits. If something changes before my regular appointment, I’ll be sure to get to the doctor sooner.” -- Will, San Ramon, CA  

No appointment. No co-pay. 
Just you, your smartphone, and an EyeQue miniscope. 

Download the FREE myEyeQue app on the Apple App Store or Google Play.

 

Your test results are immediately processed by our patented EyeQue Cloud technology.

Your vision record is returned with spherical, cylindrical and axis figures – the same values your eye doctor uses to generate a prescription.

 

Your vision records are stored securely in the cloud and accessible from your EyeQue dashboard – view them anytime from your smartphone or computer.

Compare your vision history over time and share results with your doctor. 

 

Use the results to order new glasses from online retailers.

Expand your eyeglass wardrobe using your very latest vision test results.

 

 

EyeQue is committed to making clear vision accessible to people all over the world.  We are working directly with TWOBILLIONEYES, a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands, whose mission is to provide low-cost eyewear to all of those in need.

They are currently focusing their efforts in Kenya. To read about TBE's vision to unleash the potential of millions to contribute to creating a better world for all of us, click here.

We are dedicated to inspiring people to learn about and care for their eyes by putting affordable, accurate vision tests directly into their hands. Based on revolutionary patented technology, EyeQue is bringing self-administered eye tests to billions of people around the world, many of whom may not have had the opportunity to test their eyes and correct their vision without access to this low cost, convenient solution.

A word from our co-founder, Dr. John Serri:

 

The EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker includes the miniscope and the myEyeQue app (Android or iOS). The miniscope is a sophisticated optical device. But don't let its humble appearance fool you. Inside the smooth and rounded tube hides several highly engineered, expertly designed, and intricately manufactured lenses that can give you a measurement of your eyes' refractive errors in minutes.

Remove the protective sticker and attach the miniscope to your smartphone. 

Look into the miniscope and relax your eyes.

Tap the buttons on screen to overlap the lines, (yes, this is the test!).

 Rotate the eyepiece after each measurement. 

Review your progress and track your eyesight over time.

We’re just getting started. Yet, this November we’ve already been recognized by two prestigious firms focused on breakthrough technologies and design innovations.

 

Do you know someone that could benefit from the Personal Vision Tracker? Help us spread the word!

 


 

 

If you are like most Americans, your last eye exam was more than a year ago. Whether or not you wear glasses today, your eyesight may have changed since your eyes were last checked. 

Wouldn't it be great if you could check it yourself from convenience of your own home?  

And with the emergence of online eyeglass retailers, you can now expand your eyeglass wardrobe using your very latest vision test results.

Based on our scientific study with 49 testers and 88 eyes, the EyeQue PVT demonstrated accurate measurements with respect to spherical trial lenses, over a wide range of optical power. D denotes Diopters; +8 diopters is severely hyperopic/farsighted/cannot see things close up, and -11 diopters is severely myopic/nearsighted/cannot see things far away.

Visual Acuity testing by an independent method showed that 53% of users experienced better results from the PVT than from the Topcon Autorefractor. This means the users reported seeing more clearly and were able to read more letters on a standard eye chart using test lenses prescribed by the Personal Vision Tracker, compared to test lenses prescribed by the Topcon Autorefractor.

You can find the study here.

 

 

The team at EyeQue takes enormous pride in the advancements they have made in the software and hardware that will undoubtedly create comfort and productivity for millions of people. Seeing this idea go from prototype sketches to cardboard to 3D printed tubes to high-end optical components and injection-mold finished models has been incredible, and the journey has just begun.

Risks and challenges

Our team has worked relentlessly to transform our working prototype into BETA and production versions. The first round of BETA hardware was delivered by our manufacturer ahead of schedule with superb quality; we are extremely confident that our Kickstarter fulfillment will be on time.

While we celebrate small wins every step of the way, the EyeQue team continues to explore ways to make the user experience smoother and more fun. Although the miniscope appears simple on the outside, the precision design on the inside is complex; we have built a solid relationship with our manufacturer and have plans to further streamline the product for the next release.

Other important things to know:
The PVT (Personal Vision Tracker) is a self-administered test and results will depend on how well the test was taken by the user. For certain people with various health conditions the device will not give accurate results. We do not recommend the PVT for anyone with known medical conditions associated with vision, such as cataract, glaucoma, keratoconus, and etc.

The results of the device are not meant to replace prescriptions carried out by eye doctors. EyeQue recommends that users visit their eye care provider once a year for a full Eye Exam.

The PVT is registered as a class 1 medical device in the US with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We are currently pursing but are NOT registered with any regulatory agencies outside the US, so the user uses this at their own risk.

Eyeglass Numbers are not prescriptions and cannot be used in the US in place of a prescription to order eyeglasses that require proof of a prescription. It is up to the user to determine what to do with the information provided.
