Frost & Sullivan Honors EyeQue for Its Consumer-Friendly, Handheld Ophthalmic Monitoring Solutions

By
SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Based on its recent analysis of the global home-based ophthalmic monitoring solutions market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized EyeQue Corporation with the 2020 Global Growth Excellence Frost Radar Award. EyeQue develops and markets affordable smartphone-powered, handheld, at-home vision testing devices. "EyeQue's first-of-its-kind technology was introduced in 2016 and has opened a new space in vision checking," said Dr. Sneha Maria, senior research analyst. "Its rapid, affordable, easy-to-use and comprehensive at-home vision monitoring portfolio, including the VisionCheck, Personal Vision Tracker, Insight, PDCheck, and Try-On Glasses, is a game changer for eyecare, and addresses the changing consumer behavior and rising demand to test vision at home."

Significantly, EyeQue has developed an extensive partnership network with health care providers and distributors, enabling it to scale its products. This flexibility allows the company to achieve its adoption potential across developed, developing, and emerging countries.

Consumers can directly purchase the company's products, which are also offered by optometrists and ophthalmologists to patients who require frequent vision testing. The company’s FDA-registered Class 1 devices have been patented in the U.S. and are patent pending in other countries.

"The practicality and convenience delivered by EyeQue's products to self-administer eye tests in the convenience of the patient's home have been particularly valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic," noted Dr. Maria. "The scope for affordable, self-administered vision tests in low- and middle-income countries with poor health care accessibility is expected to help EyeQue expand in developing Asia-Pacific countries."

John Serri, PhD, co-founder and president of EyeQue, commented, “The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of telemedicine among consumers as well as health care professionals. Our mission has always been to bring affordable eyecare to everyone, and 2020 has helped many people see the value and benefits that EyeQue technologies provide.

"We’re offering tools to help optometrists and ophthalmologists reach new patients, empowering consumers to check their vision from the comfort of their homes, whether independently or doctor assisted through telemedicine. We continue to evolve our products and services to accelerate growth for our brand and for the industry as a whole.”

The Growth Excellence Best Practice Award is bestowed upon companies that are achieving high growth in an intensely competitive technology area, including emerging companies making great strides in growing their technology portfolios and seasoned incumbents holding onto their position at the pinnacle of the technology.
