EyeQue Insight DIY Smartphone Vision Screener

Editor's Rating

Introducing the EyeQue Insight Visual Acuity Screener. It’s the fastest, easiest, and most accurate 20/20 vision test right on your smartphone. Great for kids with developing eyesight, this device provides instant results. Using the app, the EyeQue Insight goggles sit atop your smartphone to take you through a variety of vision tests. However, unlike the exams you’re used to, the app virtualizes the industry standard eye chart through fun and engaging yet thorough games. Totally self-administered, the EyeQue Insight takes less than three minutes to assess the right eye, left eye, and both eye capabilities. At the end, all of the vision test results are instantly stored in the EyeQue Cloud. With this, you can track any changes to your vision over time. With support for over 800 smartphones around the world, the EyeQue Insight makes accurate vision tests more accessible to everyone than ever before.

@Samuel Ng:
Thank you for your kind words and support. We look forward to your feedback once you get the Insight to try out.
Best Regards
Samuel Ng
You guys are amazing, keep on the delivery schedule, well done.
@Kostyantyn Luferov,
The answer is yes if you registered and used a PVT to take a test, as apparently you did, you now have membership for life. Membership applies to the user, not the device. What that means is that you can use any device made by EyeQue including the Insight and any other future products we create.
Hope that helps
Hey I have a quick question. I backed up your first EyeQue campaign and I remember that those members received membership for life. Would we be able to transfer that over to this one as well? I tried using the first generation, but it was hard for me to analyze my vision with it. Let me know! Thank you!
@Rich, that's a great attitude to start off 2018! Happy new year!
I’m walking into 2018 with a clear heart and mind...If you owe me, don't worry about it, that debt is forgiven- and you're's all good - a great lesson learned...If you're angry with me, you've won...If we aren't speaking, it's cool (I wish you well) and I want you to be GREAT....If you feel I wronged you, and you have told everyone but me...peace be onto you....Life is too short for me to hold on to anger or holding grudges.....All is forgiven and I forgive myself, for another year. Here's to 2018!!!... Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello Carsten! Thank you for your interest. Great question-- We added EU shipping (for $25 instead of $30, which is the rate for the rest of the world) later on in the campaign when we found a lower rate. Since there were already backers on the reward we could not change anything about the reward (and shipping options)-- If you back the super early bird reward, we'd be happy to give you a $5 refund for shipping to EU. Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any additional questions. Love, EyeQue Team
We are the shipping costs for super early bird 30$ but for early bird and awesome bird only 25$?
Hello @Tan-Li Hsu,
Regarding using the EyeQue personal vision tracker, we can probably get your phone supported as long as it it meets the basic 300 ppi requirement. What is the ppi on the Essential Phone? If you contact support at we will follow up. Regarding the new product in this campaign, the EyeQue Insight, you should have no problem running the App on your Essential phone if it meets the basic requirement outlined below.
Tan-li Hsu
Hope so, the myeyeque app doesn't work on the Essential phone for the vision tracker they sent me
@Tan-li Hsu,
The EyeQue Insight app should be able to run on the Essential Phone. If the screen resolution is greater than 300 ppi and the screen size greater than 4.7 ", it will work.
Tan-li Hsu
Looks like my phone is not supported. Any chance of adding the Essential Phone to your list in the future?
Dear @Arun, The shipping prices are currently set at cost to us to ship to those locations. While a larger volume to those locations may drop the cost of shipping, it is not something that happens instantaneously. If you would like to discuss this more offline, please contact EyeQue customer support ( and we can talk about what tier you are interested in and what shipping options are available to you. ~EyeQue Support
The shipping cost is very high to Singapore. Is there any possibility that it might reduce of you have enough volumes?
@Darek, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are really excited about the Insight and love hearing feedback from our backers. First things first-- The bundle is indeed a great deal-- Please email us at and we can work out the details for you regarding shipping. Second thing-- You are absolutely correct! To thank our early users for their support, we are rolling out free subscription forever for anyone with an EyeQue account prior to January 2018-- The subscription is good for both the Personal Vision Tracker as well as the Insight. Lastly, yes, and YES! Both the Personal Vision Tracker and the Insight can help you monitor your vision's fluctuations. the PVT can detect changes as small as 0.25 diopters, and the Insight can screen visual acuity from 20/20 to 20/400-- Although visual acuity is measured differently from diopters for refractive error, the more tests you take (and more data you have), the better you will be able to track your vision over time-- day-to-day, week-to-week, and as often as you want! Let us know if you have any other questions!
Hello team! So excited to see your campaign. Before I keep my plea, I have some questions. First - I am interested in The Holiday Bundle. I mean SUPER INTERESTED. Sadly, I'm currently based in EU and not US. Is there a way you can make an exception for me? I don't mind receiving the package after Christmas as it's for my personal use. Germany or Poland would be the destination country to ship if that matters. Please, please, please! Waiting until March for just the Insight would be a real pain :( Second thing is the subscription. I have found on your website that thanks to being the early supporter, I will get life time subscription for the app. Is this valid for this kickstarter campaign? How do I make sure I get my lifetime subscription? Last but not least, I am aware that my vision acuity flunctuates. Does app account for that? I mean, will it catch very small differences in vision like 0.25 or 0.5 dioptres? Will it also support if my vision improves rather then goes worse? Sorry for the long post. Eager to read the answers!
@Stephen Andreski:
Stephen, thanks for backing EyeQue up on Insight as well as the PVT. We have updated the Personal Vision Tracker App so it is even easier to use than before; for example the Red - Green Test lines are thicker and longer making them easier to see. We also improved the overall usability of the app. Best Regards
@Tommy Lin
Thank you for your support of EyeQue. We think you will really like the Insight. It is very easy to use and accurate.
Tommy Lin
I was a backer of the previous product and it was just great. I know you guys can't claim or tell us that it will give us results to buy glasses for liability reasons, but I just want to say that it worked great for me. I'm excited for this one! I have a few old glasses that I want to play with!
@robin: Thanks for your question and for backing us on this effort. This Insight device measures visual acuity, basically a measure that determines now sharp your vision is, corrected, i.e. with glasses or uncorrected, no glasses. It is similar to the eye test you may remember taking in school or vision testing at the DMV to get a driver license( Dept. of Motor Vehicles in USA). The Eyeque Personal vision tracker measures one aspect of vision, the refractive error of your eye. The Miniscope produces the refraction correction numbers, which we call EyeGlass numbers, so that you can order glasses or compare to a previous prescription. Essentially everyone benefit from knowing what their visual acuity is. In children it is very important to catch myopia early, and the first sign that a child has Myopia is that they will have trouble seeing at the level of 20/20 vision. The Visual acuity test is a quick indicator. For adults one good thing to do is to see how your distance vision glasses are working. You should be able to see 20/20 in both eyes if your glasses are working well. As with the Eyeque Miniscope the Insight can be used by different persons and testing can be done at home, as often as you want. Hope that helps. Please ask us any other questions you may have. Best Regards

I was a backer for your first product and my wife and I have both had fun using it. I’ve even ordered glasses with great results. What’s different about this one aside from the form factor?
@Didodio the EyeQue Insight is aimed at finding your visual acuity; it will not give you results to order a pair of glasses.
would this give us the prescription that I can use to buy glasses?
@stephen & @ying: Thank you for your feedback! It really makes our day to hear from happy customers. We are excited for the Insight campaign and know that our innovation will benefit kids and parents all around the world. Please help us spread the word!
The concept is pretty cool and useful indeed. Cannot wait to get the actual product.
stephen andreski
I was a backer for the previous campaign and felt like I got my money’s worth out of the device just playing around with and testing it even if I never used it’s such a cool idea that I’m in for exploring its of luck with this campaign, gang!
