EyeQue VisionCheck 2: the new and improved at home vision test
EyeQue is a low-cost solution that allows you to test your vision and order new glasses with the results. All of this can be done from the comfort of your home.
The original EyeQue has been around for a couple of years now. I tested the product last year and came out pleasantly surprised. In some ways the reports churned out by the device are even more detailed that those you get from your eye doctor. Most importantly, I found the results to be extremely accurate.
Now the company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise awareness of the second generation product. Just like the original, VisionCheck 2 is a lightweight optical smartphone attachment that comes with a mobile app.
You are meant to do a series of vision tests with two colored lines viewed through an optical smartphone attachment. Using the buttons on the device, move the lines closer together or further apart to converge. Your refractive correction needed will depend on how well you do.
This can then be used to order new eyeglasses from many online retailers. The information also allows you to have up-to-date knowledge on how your vision is changing over time.

The second generation product is the result of some two years of research and development. Every aspect of the vision test has been optimized to include an entirely new form-factor and better test screens.
EyeQue VisionCheck 2 is live from today on Kickstarter. Prices start at $57 and up, with delivery expected in Q2 2021. Included with the product is PDCheck. This measures the distance between the centers of the pupils of your eyes, a number that is needed to order good fitting glasses.
