**Requires the EyeQue VisionCheck device to take vision tests.**
*Don’t have one? Order from EyeQue or Amazon today!*
Our second-generation CES-award winning vision test, VisionCheck, is powered by MIT-patented technology to help you learn about your refractive error i.e. your nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
You can use the EyeQue VisionCheck app if you:
- Have a single vision prescription between +8.00 and -10.00
- Have a cylinder between 0 and -5.00
- Are ages 25 and older
- Want to track your vision
You should not use the EyeQue VisionCheck app if you:
- Have light sensitivity
- Are colorblind or have difficulty differentiating between red and green
- Require a prism measurement
- Have difficulty holding up a smartphone while navigating the smartphone screen
- Have a medical condition that affects your eyes or eyesight, including but not limited to glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or cataracts.
The VisionCheck uses MIT-patented Inverse Shack-Hartmann technology, which utilizes optical lenses combined with your smartphone’s pixel movement, to measure where the light focuses on the back of your retina. This means that to take a vision test, you’ll attach the VisionCheck to your phone, which will act a light source during the test, then take multiple measurements at different angles by merging a red and a green line into a solid yellow line.
*This is a self-administered vision test and results may vary. Our test performance feedback instantly lets you know how well you tested and provides resources to improve test performance.*

Ratings and Reviews
Test results shouldn’t be rounded
Update ( October 9th, 2020): Unfortunately the individual test results have now been totally removed from the app. That also removes the ability to easily tell if the test you just took failed for some reason.
I like that you can now look at the individual test results but they unfortunately are rounded to the nearest quarter diopter. That’s not really giving us access to the raw results. I’m assuming they are doing that because the results jump around so much. The test values still jump around a lot with the rounded results but with big quarter diopter jumps. EyeQue should just state that the results are going to change between testing sessions because that it is the nature of vision and show the unrounded results. The tests also don’t match what is shown on the PDF Refraction Report that you can download from the website. The results shown on that report are *not* rounded.
Developer Response ,
Hi Jet-pad, thank you for providing such detailed feedback. We will share your experience with the management team this week. Not rounding individual tests, is something that can be done. We will strongly consider this for the next app update. If you have any more great suggestions like this, please email us any time directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eyeglass Rx in the palm of your hand
Been using VisionCheck for 3 years now.
Each year, (just as the first time) when I break it out and charge the EyeQue device, it takes a short time to get comfortable with:
1. my eye orientation (to see the red and green lines) 2. its response to my finger input
3. the overall positioning of my arms, hands, head and posture…
so that all things work in unison to produce good results.
After the first (of three repetition) Right and Left eye (9 position) tests, I’m once again comfortable and I continue and complete all testing.
By the way, if you don’t think you did your best (during any of the three test repetitions) you can select to delete that repetition and retake the test.
All saved tests (time after time, year after year) are saved in a database to track and verify your vision and available for you to view.
The VisionCheck device/app is written so that if you attempt to save a test the results of which don't correspond to what would be considered appropriate values, it will warm you.
Each year my VisionCheck Rx is used to purchase new glasses (progressive lenses) and I’ve been perfectly satisfied with my corrected vision!
I recommend VisionCheck. That’s my opinion. It saves me time. It saves me money. It saves me frustration. And ultimately, I’m responsible for myself…just as it should be. I hope my published opinion assists you in making your own decision.
All the Best!
Nice Option to Vision Check
I feel very confident in the results - more so than the eye doctor where I am guessing at reading a chart. The device does take awhile to adapt to but by the last test it was natural.
It is a little awkward with your phone’s security features (which I cannot turn off due to work) which lock my device. But again as the tests went on this was less of an issue.
I am frustrated that you can order glasses from only 2 online retailers - limiting your choices.
