In this video, I present an overview of what the EyeQue device and other devices and what that may mean for the Eyewear industry as a whole over the next 5 to 10 years.
I talk about the history of the UK optical market and why the past and current culture sets itself up to fragment into two separate business models.
One model to screen health of the eyes and the other that will sell eyewear and glasses online due to the the scale and maturity of the internet.
Discuss why it has taken so long compared to other services and retail. Also the value of the health screening performed in the eyetest and a few common problems that are so important t screen for.
Discuss an interesting device called PEEK that can take retinal photos to screen peoples health.
9:27: Why I think the EyeQue device is a game changer to disrupt the industry. The Optometrist being at risk before the businesses themselves.
12:00 What will happen to eye health screening if devices like this are used widespread to refract people.
15:30 Discuss arguments of why glasses sales are difficult online and what the future holds.
19:00 My predictions for the next 5 to 10 years and how you can navigate that period.
21:50 Summary of the EyeQue device and overall discussion.
