iCare update 10/11/22

added new device to my home health care arsenal

The Eyeque Insight Lite Vision Screener

This company, Eyeque, is situated to provide the user , those responsible for Home Health Care or others in the field with a simple way to check vision between visits to the eye doctor or those (on a global scale) unable to get to a vision screening facility. This is only one of their products. It”s at an entry level price. I’m currently evaluating for myself, this product, but with the first completed test, it gave me some numbers on the status of my vision from the comfort of my home. More, later. Yes we are assuming you have a the required smart phone specifications by Eyeque for this device.


Addendum 10/11/22

I’ve used the Eyeque Insight Lite a few times. There were some issues with compatibility with smartphone devices used and there is a required set of specifications as to the smartphone’s requirement.. Best results was with the Xiaomi MiMax3, the EyeQue Insight has specific browser requirements as it’s not an app per say (this may have been changed) but a web address so the browser requirement is a software requirement.

“read the instructions…DUH” I’m one of those who occasional assume that a smart device or app will give out all the pertinent information and error checking when it operates. Storing your results int he cloud only works when you are logged in (multiple accounts possible) . Once up and running there maybe a slight lag registering the finger swipes (indicating the direction of the “E”, each successive indication of a finger swipe has an audio indication and it advances to the next display of the “E”, some may be more than one “E” visible. When you can’t distinguish the direction of the decreasing size of the “E” you press the blue button marked “I’m not sure”. The tests shortly concludes and the results are given such as 20/50 etc. for each one of both eyes. The contrast test is similar and displays a varying shade of gray “E” for your contrast test and grades the results on 3 scales Low , Medium and High. I’ve noticed the contrast test is more pertinent than the acuity test.

Do you really need this device one would ask? It is possible to get your own printed eye chart and do the test (in a properly lighted room) and there may be other testing available online with a desktop monitor (properly calibrated). The EyeQue Insight stores the results and can easily work at any location. Could be used in the field (with a smartphone) where access to a chart or computer is not available. Also unsure if the app or webpage used can operate without a cell/wifi connection active.


One other note, any measurement taken at a given time is not the same, in Metrology, an certifiable measurement may be the average of several readings and/or readings taken by more than one person or more than one source. The readings are valued for an average and a certain +/- range of a measurement is certified. Basing any conclusion , especially in the health care field, on only a few readings, may be inaccurate or lead to inaccurate results and conclusions.. Given the size of datasets that my be collected in the cloud, accuracy may be increased if a measurement is compared to a data set collected in the cloud.


Also not shown, Google Pixel 3 running Zep Life app. Workout selected for walking gives fairly good results just having the phone in my pocket. But possibly the updating of the GPS make it appear that you are walking around if the phone is stationary. I”ve kept the app running during the day without a lengthily walk and racked up mileage and steps.

Considering a fitness band addition in the future. Weight can be logged in to the Zep life app if you don’t have a smart scale but a smart scale would be a good addition to consider. It would be nice to have the Zep app allow you to manually enter blood pressure, pulse and temperature. Presently I use a notepad app.

You see where this is going for home health care and a more independent assessment of one’s health at their own frequency and convenience and that an average of several readings is better than a single snapshot of parameters.
