- Company expands direct e-store distribution and support to serve USA, Canada, and the United Kingdom
- Launches Indiegogo campaign to rapidly address global demand
NEWARK, CA – March 16, 2017 – EyeQue™, developers of affordable consumer-based vision technologies, today announced it has shipped more than 5,600 EyeQue miniscopes to people in 81 countries. Initial shipments have fulfilled the 3,913 orders earned during a successful Kickstarter campaign, which concluded January 4, 2017, plus the online orders placed at eyeque.com. Since announcing the EyeQue online store this January, the Company has expanded availability to serve Canada and the United Kingdom in addition to the United States. To immediately satisfy global demand, EyeQue has launched an Indiegogo campaign. EyeQue is actively pursuing additional international distribution channels.
“Meeting promises and exceeding projections are two mainstays of the EyeQue culture,” said John Serri, PhD, founder of EyeQue. “We expected to begin fulfilling our initial Kickstarter orders in mid-February, but started shipping in mid-January. By March 1st we had delivered on virtually every order, including the first 800 placed directly through eyeque.com, igniting an active EyeQue community.” said Serri.
Early adopters have provided valuable feedback, some testing the device across multiple users in the household, and various smartphones and environments. Such feedback has fueled the Company’s product roadmap.
“The EyeQue team is laser-focused listening to the thoughtful suggestions and keen insights of our customers. Our EyeQue community has grown into the thousands in just a few months and their input moves us closer toward realizing the dream of affordable eye tests for everyone,” Serri continued.
EyeQue encourages everyone to become active participants in the Company’s initiatives by corresponding with the team here. These are a few of the comments the EyeQue community has provided in recent weeks:
“It’s a great product and seems to pick up on things like astigmatism etc very well. I am satisfied with the product and was shocked to see how close the numbers were to a current eye test by a professional.”
“I love the idea of a personal eye exam. I don’t have a prescription so I don’t know how accurate it is but the results are what I guessed my results would be. It saves time and money and I can appreciate both of those things.”
“I was pleasantly surprised on how easy and accurate the EyeQue is. As a Natural Vision Teacher, this will be very useful for me and potential clients. Thanks for creating this product!”
EyeQue™ is on a global mission to elevate eye care. The Company is dedicated to inspiring people to learn about and care for their eyes by putting affordable, accurate vision tests directly into their hands. The EyeQue optical miniscope and myEyeQue™ mobile application create an intelligent vision solution for anyone to use anywhere, at any time – convenient, low-cost, and fun. Results are instantly processed and stored securely in the cloud, creating a vision history that can be shared with doctors. The Company innovates from its Silicon Valley headquarters.
The EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker™ is the first in-home vision testing solution to combine an optical miniscope, a smartphone application, and secure cloud-based technology platform to form a low-cost, uniquely precise option for people to gather corrective vision measurements whenever and wherever they choose. The EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker earned the title of CES 2017 Best of Innovation in the Fitness, Sports and Biotech category.
EyeQue does not issue prescriptions. While using the EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker to measure and track refractive error has the benefits of detecting changes between regular eye exams, it does not replace a comprehensive eye exam that evaluates ocular health and binocularity. EyeQue urges people to visit a doctor annually for a full eye health exam.
