EyeQue customer Lynn is a 68-year-old retiree who lives near Lansing, Michigan on 15 acres of land. She spends a lot of her time tending to dogs, ponies, and the goldfish pond which she built herself!
She also lives a very active lifestyle as there is always something to be done around her property whether that is tending to the solar panels on her home or cutting firewood. In addition to her homely duties, Lynn is also a photographer, hunter, and kickboxer.
She describes herself as a creator. An apt description as Lynn is always busy creating art through her photography, and she even fashioned her own type of sunglasses using polarized camera filters!
Being both presbyopic and myopic, Lynn has trouble seeing clearly at a distance, and she has trouble reading when her distance vision is corrected. In order to see well at both distances, Lynn relies on monovision contacts —this means she only wears a contact in one eye. The eye with the contact is her distance eye, and the one without is her near eye.
While this is an excellent way to get vision both near and far without needed glasses, binocular vision can suffer a little. For most day-to-day activities, Lynn does just fine with her monovision, but for driving, she needs more distance clarity.
In order to get clear driving vision, she uses a pair of glasses that works over her contact lenses.
When COVID first started, Lynn found herself wearing her contacts as long as possible because she wanted to avoid face-to-face interactions at the eye doctor and reduce the risk of exposure that a visit could bring.
She stumbled upon EyeQue while searching online for a way to renew her prescription without needing a trip to the eye doctor. She used the VisionCheck to get her EyeGlass Numbers and check her vision, while in the comfort of her home.
“The [results] are better than when I went through an eye doctor! When I’m at the eye doctor’s, I think I must try too hard. The prescription from the doctor never seem to be strong enough,” she says.
She loved her experiences with EyeQue products, especially her Try-On Glasses. She also has glowing words for the EyeQue team: “I can’t tell you how happy I am… they went way out of their way to make sure everything was right.”
