Busy mamas, rejoice! You can track your kids' eyesight from your own home!
Let's face it, whether we like it or not, kids are indoors more and with the popularity of tablets in the classroom, children today get a lot of screen time, both at home and in the classroom. Since good vision is crucial to academic success, testing your child's vision frequently is important, but obviously, frequent visits to the eye doctor aren't convenient with your hectic schedule and can be costly.
The EyeQue Insight is a device you use at your home, pair with an app, and check your child's vision (and you can check your own too!) Intended for children 6 and up, kids do a little activity (with a super fun cartoon!) to determine their vision capabilities. My kiddo loved the cartoon, but his still a little too little to do the swiping, so definitely this works best on older kids. However, I also tested my own vision and it was such a great tool. Though I've always had above 20/20 vision, as I've aged, my vision has been changing, so this is a great tool that I will use often to keep tabs on if I need to seek glasses or contacts.
The app downloads quickly and it's super easy to activate your device. This took me all of 5 minutes (which is awesome when you're time is a commodity!).
I can't recommend this product enough--not only will your kid think it's cool, but you will too. (I'm not going to lie, I think I said "I can't believe we're doing this in our kitchen" like five times).
