NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EyeQue®, the leader of smartphone vision testing, is thrilled to be named a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree in two categories – Health & Wellness, and Mobile Devices & Accessories – for its new EyeQue VisionCheck 2. VisionCheck 2 is the most powerful refraction device available for consumers to test their own vision and order new glasses with the results – all without leaving the safety and comfort of home. Launched on Kickstarter on December 9, the campaign exceeded its goal within a few days with the support of more than 500 backers.
VisionCheck 2 is a lightweight optical smartphone attachment and mobile app. The test results are expressed as EyeGlass Numbers® (EGNs), the lens-power needed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, which can be used to order new eyeglasses from many online retailers.
“We are delighted to have earned this prestigious honor for our latest DIY refraction test, VisionCheck 2. This acknowledgement from the Consumer Technology Association, coupled with the extraordinary response to our Kickstarter campaign validates the tireless work our team invests into our smartphone vision tests,” said Dr. John Serri, co-founder, President and COO of EyeQue.
