As we get older, our vision changes. After the age of 40, it’s perfectly normal to lose focusing ability due to the hardening of the lens inside the eye. Beyond 50, you may notice the need for more frequent changes in prescriptions for glasses. This is why it’s important to go for regular eye doctor exams. But there are other solutions.
California-based EyeQue has recently launched VisionCheck. This is the third offering from the company. It’s first product was the Personal Vision Tracker, a low-cost home-based solution that tests spherical, cylindrical and axis figures. These are the same values your eye doctor uses to generate a prescription. It followed this up with Insight, a fast and easy home administered 20/20 vision test. The latest offering goes even further.
A home based eye-test? Sounds great. But are the results from VisionCheck really on par with those you get from an eye doctor? Read on for my full review.
“Going into this review I was unsure on what to expect. Ultimately I came out pleasantly surprised. CES honored the company with not one, but two CES Innovations Awards, in 2017 and 2019. For a reason.”
