Product: EyeQue Insight
Top Line: EyeQue is introducing the EyeQue Insight visual acuity screener, a gamified 20/20 screener that combines a binocular viewer, a mobile application, and cloud-based service. Low-cost, rugged, and convenient, EyeQue recommends Insight for families, school administrators, group organizations, and charities. Insight is suited for international use with support for 20/20, 6/6, and other standardized units. The binocular viewer is part of an expandable platform, supporting future vision tests and applications.
“The Insight visual acuity screener is a major technological advancement in personalized health monitoring, allowing people to assess their visual acuity in the comfort of their home,” said EyeQue Optometry advisor, Careen Caputo, OD, MPH. “The Insight’s random tumbling-E chart provides a simple and accurate measurement of an individual’s visual acuity. This is a valuable benefit to patients, allowing them to check how well they see without correction– or with their current glasses or contact lenses.”
John Serri, PhD, CTO and co-founder of EyeQue, noted, “There is a global myopia epidemic in part due to increasing time spent indoors and heavy use of mobile phones and laptops. The recommended annual doctor’s visit is insufficient in detecting the rapid onset of nearsightedness, which occurs in up to 40 percent of children, ages 6 to18,” said “When caught early enough, mitigation can be taken, avoiding life-long burdens associated with severe myopia. Our goal is to get low-cost, accurate vision screening tools like the EyeQue Insight directly into people’s hands so vision changes can be identified early.”
Close Up:
• Screens vision for 20/20 to 20/400 in under three minutes, providing exact measures of single and dual eye performance.
• Creates a digital vision history– where a change indicates that a doctor’s visit would be advised.
• Tests the accuracy of current glasses or contacts, indicating when an updated prescription may be required.
• Instantly records and securely stores results, making data available to share with others.
• One EyeQue Insight can be shared with many people, making it a value for families and suitable for testing large groups.
Vital Stats:
The EyeQue Insight is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter and set to deliver in March 2018. The product will be available for hands-on demonstration at the International CES show in Las Vegas, January 9 to 12, 2018.

Tech Startup, Speqs, Debuts a Real-Time, Virtual Eyeglass Try-On System


Product: SpeqsOn powered by Image Metric
Top Line: Tech startup Speqs is introducing SpeqsOn, a real-time, virtual eyeglass try-on system. The mobile system is driven by Image Metric, a facial mapping and tracking algorithm set that allows for highly accurate images from any camera source. It can adjust to a wide array of conditions, including low light, as well as race, gender, age or facial hair differences. The Image Metrics technology has been tested in the cosmetic industry via the “Makeup Genius” app developed for L’Oreal.
Close Up:
• SpeqsOn utilizes a high-performance mobile Augmented Reality (AR) platform for real-time 3D facial-based applications on mobile devices.
The mobile platform increases consumer engagement and provides rich analytics.
• The system is virtually instant. Users can begin trying on glasses in only 7.4 seconds, significantly faster than some competitors’ try-on systems. Click here to see a video demonstration.
The technology offers a fun user experience, allowing for flipping through eyewear quickly, with suggested looks and an instant thumbs up and down. Users can view all aspects of the glasses.
"VTO within the optical industry specifically is moving quickly now, with almost all of the large players working to grapple with the obvious power of highly realistic, simple-to-use “Snapchat like” technology, and how it enters the market. People can now experience a great fit, near photorealistic rendering, and unlimited frames to try-on. Image Metrics is very pleased to have partnered with the fearless visionaries at Speqs as they take optical dispensing to the next generation—utilizing multiple new technical platforms to offer a smooth, unprecedented customer journey," said Ron Ryder, CEO, Image Metrics.
Vital Stats: The system can be adapted to new technology such as depth cameras, which will facilitate accurate frame measurement and upcoming Augmented Reality (AR) hardware devices.
