Digital Eye Health; towards remote monitoring in eyecare
Our project starts in July 2020 and will take 30 months to complete. The goal of this project is to rapidly make available remote eye care for patients and their doctors in the current COVID-19 crisis, to support availability and accessibility of eye care in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis, and to improve the existing tool into a clinically validated and integrated platform, enabling the heralded sustainable digital transition in eye health.

Making eye care accessible to everyone


We have 3 short questions before we can get started.

1. The eye-exam takes about 20 minutes from beginning to end. Is now a good time?

● No lost time traveling or waiting for your appointment. The only minutes spent is on the test itself.

Glad to hear you’re not in a hurry. This will improve the results.

Do you have a smartphone, together with a laptop (or tablet), and 3 meters of space at your disposal?

● Your smartphone will function as a remote, and is also used together with a laptop (or tablet) to perform the online eye-exam.

That’s great! We’re almost good to go. Just one more thing.

Do you have your current eyewear prescription at your fingertips?

● Your prescription powers your eyewear. Our optometrists use your old one as areference for validating your new prescription.

Take the exam now, or save it for later?

Based on experience, we advise you to take your time with the online eye-exam to optimize your results. We can email you a link to proceed whenever you’re ready.
