The world’s first online eye exam with a CE-mark at 100% Optical in London
At this year’s 100% Optical in London, visitors have the chance to get a sneak peek at the future of optometry. With easee’s online eye exam, customers do not need to leave the house anymore to get an eye test.
The only online eye test with a CE-mark worldwide started with a simple idea – to make eye care accessible for everyone with a telemedicine solution. CEO and founder Yves Prevoo got the idea during a conference in the US and took to the task with his friend and business partner Elly Nkya. Both had met at their MBA studies in Germany and they soon partnered up with two optometrists from the UK.
A new era of eye testing
A lot of extensive research and product development was needed to create an online eye exam that is equivalent to the refraction test during an in-person exam. Accurate testing methods, a smart algorithm and a simple user interface are now revolutionizing a process that hasn’t changed a lot during the past 100 years.
The online eye exam is able to produce eyewear prescriptions to persons with the most common refractive errors in an age range from 18-40 years. With further research and development, easee is seeking to extend the suitable age range and to make the test available for more people.
An easee test from the comfort of home
How does the easee online eye test work? All a user needs is a computer, a smartphone and 3 metres of space. After a quick medical check that ensures that it will be possible to give the user an online prescription, the user calibrates their computer screen and connects the smartphone to the test with a QR-code. The smartphone is used as a remote control throughout the test. Clear audio instructions lead the user seamlessly within the steps of the test.
Next to data about sphere, the test also checks for astigmatism. Each result is validated by an ophthalmologist or optician. Users receive their new prescription within max. 24 hours in their email inbox.

The easee solution is the missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle of a 360 degree online shopping experience.
