While it’s very important to have regular check-in appointments with your eye doctor, it’s not always convenient to visit your optometrist. Most vision insurance plans only cover annual visits, and it’s difficult to gauge what your life will look like in one year from now. Fortunately, we’re living in an age of smartphones and advanced technology where you can keep better track of your eye health anywhere you want! Here are seven reasons you should start keeping up with your vision at home:
#1: It’s SO convenient.
This may seem obvious, but it’s true! Between work, family, and social engagements, it can be a pain to try and schedule any further activities like optometrist appointments. However, the EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker can be used at any time, in any place. Squeeze in a quick eye check-up whenever you have a few minutes, and see the important details on your myEyeQue app dashboard in real time.
#2: It connects right to your smartphone.
You already own 50% of the supplies you need to test your vision! The Personal Vision Tracker attaches to almost any smartphone and is incredibly easy to set up. All you have to do is attach the miniscope to your phone and look through to see your phone screen and complete the quick test.
#3: It’s accurate.
The EyeQue Personal Vision Tracker and Insight Screener provides results which are just as accurate as the eye tests at your doctor’s office. In fact, you can use your EyeQue EyeGlass Numbers to order glasses online. The more tests you take using your Personal Vision Tracker, the more accurate your results will become. There’s even a helpful “confidence level” tab to help you gage the quality of your test results.
#4: You can detect age-related vision issues right away.
As you age, you’re more likely to experience vision issues such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and other conditions. The EyeQue Insight 20/20 Vision Screener can help you detect this issues early so you don’t have to wait until your next optometrist appointment to address them.
#5: You can bring more information to your eye doctor.
When you perform vision tests in between optometrist appointments, you’ll be able to bring information about your eye health right to your doctor. The myEyeQue app dashboard even tracks your past vision tests, so you can see how your vision has been changing over time. This dashboard can help you prepare questions you may have before your next appointment.
#6: It’s kid-friendly!
The EyeQue Insight 20/20 Vision Screener is fun to use, as the vision test is set up like a game. Kids love to look through the miniscope feature and interact with the animated host who leads the test. The host even tells jokes and rewards your kids for taking the test with collectible digital stickers.
#7: It’s completely secure.
We all value our privacy, but especially with matters related to our personal health. This is why EyeQue’s vision tests are stored in a secure cloud, so you’re the only one who can access your results. Your optometrist can’t even access this information without you choosing to share the data with him or her.
