EyeQue is on a mission to bring affordable eye care to everyone.

We’re putting accurate vision tests directly into the hands of people around the world. Our patented technology makes self-administered eye tests available to billions of people– many of whom may not have had the ability to test their eyes and correct their vision without access to low cost, convenient solutions.

Leadership Team

In 2015, our founders Tibor and John discovered an MIT patented technology that could theoretically create a smartphone-powered refraction test rivaling traditional room-sized ophthalmic refractometers. Realizing the global impact of such technological advancements, they set out to develop optical smartphone attachments and mobile applications that empower people anywhere to test their own vision and take part in their own vision correction.
