There’s more to your eyesight than just whether or not you can see. Often, your vision can be a window to other health issues, like autism, Parkinson’s and even whether you have a concussion. That’s the idea behind RightEye’s EyeQ system, which aims to revolutionize the optometrist office with eye-tracking tech to not only diagnose issues, but to offer therapeutic measures to correct them as well. At CES 2018, the company released a brand new all-in-one EyeQ terminal that incorporates a PC, a monitor as well as a Tobii eye-tracking camera that promises to do all of that and more.
According to CEO and co-founder Adam Gross, EyeQ has already been in use in schools, certain clinics and hospitals, and is also in use by Major League Baseball to test their athletes. Aside from having a new terminal, RightEye is also introducing a slew of different EyeQ tests that can assess everything from Brain Health to whether or not you have autism. One particularly useful test is called Sports Vision, which can immediately figure out if you’re still suffering from concussion symptoms. There’s also a Reading Evaluation test that children can take to figure out if their reading problems stem from actual vision issues or if it’s more psychological.
When you sit down to try one of the tests out, it simply asks you to follow a dot around as well as to shoot spaceships out of the sky. This is to test reaction times as well as eye movement.
Gross said that RightEye already has their legacy systems installed in almost 200 different locations, most of them domestically. It hopes to release its newer all-in-one EyeQ terminal in February of this year.
