The new EyeQue app gives users the ability to test for age-related changes in their eyesight.

Today, EyeQue released an app that gives users the ability to test their eyesight for presbyopia, which is a fairly prevalent age-related visual issue that affects many people.

EyeQue Vision Check was evaluated by our team a few years ago, and we discovered that it provides very precise results. It gives you the ability to check for changes in your eyesight with detailed data that are comparable to those you would get from a doctor. It is not a replacement for having your eyes examined by an eye doctor once a year, but it does provide a way for you to run quick refractive error tests at home in the interim between those visits.

Following the publication of that review, EyeQue has distributed a variety of new items. One of these is the updated version of EyeQue Vision Check, which is a home vision test called EyeQue Vision Check 2. Every facet of the product, including the packaging and the testing procedures, has been improved, including the introduction of an altogether new form factor. The EyeQue Vision Monitoring Kit, the EyeQue VisionCheck, and the EyeQue Try-On Glasses are the three products that are currently part of the EyeQue product line.

EyeQue AR powers the MyReaderNumber app.

The company is concentrating its efforts on software development rather than hardware at the moment. Its most recent offering is a mobile application for smartphones called MyReaderNumber. It provides vision assessment for presbyopia using augmented reality technologies.

As we get older, our eyes become less able to focus on things that are in close proximity to them. This condition is known as presbyopia, and it describes the gradual loss of flexibility that occurs in the eyes as they age. It is estimated that 128 million people in the United States have the illness, which is more than one-third of the population. The onset of symptoms normally occurs after the age of 40, and they get more severe at the age of 60 and beyond. The majority of people are forced to deal with this vexatious aspect of getting older.

Utilizing a magnifying lens is a quick and easy solution that can be used to circumvent the issue. You could, of course, try holding your phone or newspaper away from you, but doing so regularly could give you headaches, dizziness, or eye strain. Another option is to move further away from your device altogether.

Investing in a good pair of reading glasses is the most effective course of action you can take. However, to obtain these, you will need to take accurate measurements for close reading (such as reading a book or using a smartphone) and mid-distance use (working on a computer or iPad). The MyReaderNumber app provides tests that allow you to arrive at these values. These tests take into account a user’s age and their preferred reading distance in addition to the user’s age.

Augmented reality technology uses the camera on the front of your smartphone to measure two different distances. After taking such measures, users can purchase reading glasses that are tailored to their own preferences and requirements.

The application has received approval from the FDA to be marketed as a Class I medical device under the 510(k) exemption. After today (the 17th of February 2022), for a one-time cost of $2.99, it will be available for download via the App Store on iOS exclusively. It will be compatible with iPhone X and later models. Multiple users may use the application simultaneously without incurring any additional fees.
