The success of easee’s remote eye testing study

Tags: #Medical #Technology

The challenges in the accessibility and quality of eye care have not been adequately addressed in public health initiatives in the past, but the critical need for more effective healthcare delivery programs are being recognised. The easee team strives to provide a reliable assessment of whether you need glasses or contacts while reducing costs. 

Ophthalmologists and vision scientists from the university medical center Utrecht teamed up with easee to investigate the accuracy and safety of remote eye testing. The outcomes of the easee eye test were compared with traditional in-clinic optometrist eye assessments and the researchers went to great lengths to secure the independent validation of these findings. 

In this clinical study, 200 eyes were tested. The easee test reported comparable outcomes in Visual Acuity, and the refractive error was non-inferior to the conventional test, particularly for people with mild myopia. 90% of the participants achieved a 20/20 (better than the average) vision with the easee prescription.

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.
