Smart Vision Labs
The future of eye care is here, and it’s on your smartphone. Smart Vision Labs, co-founded by Yaopeng Zhou and Marc Albanese, offers a portable, accurate, user-friendly and cost effective way to measure vision and produce an eyeglasses prescription. By attaching an optometry lens to a smartphone camera, an optometrist (or anyone trained to use the device, for that matter) can take a picture of a patient’s eye. The attachment measures the amount of light that passes through the retina, and then instantly measures the sphere (near or farsightedness), axis (astigmatism) and cylinder (astigmatism) of the eye. Patients can then quickly upload the prescription results to the cloud and bring it to their eyewear provider.
