This morning EyeQue, maker of at home visual acuity tests, scored $11.2 million in its second funding round. This latest financing brings the company’s total funding to $16.2 million.
“The funding is going to be used to increase product development,” John Serri, cofounder and chief technology officer, told MobiHealthNews. “We have an interesting headline of new products coming out based on various tests methods that we have and IP that we have generated.”
The company was founded in 2015 and is based in Newark, California. But the startup initially deployed its first refraction device in January of 2017. More recently, the company launched the EyeQue Insight visual acuity screener, an at-home visual acuity test that looks like a VR headset and attaches to the users’ smartphone, in March.
