A common symptom of diabetes is blurred vision, and a timely eye test that detects changes in the blood vessels in your retinas could go a long way towards diagnosing and treating the disease. 

EyeQue is a technology company founded in 2015 which has created a Personal Vision Tracker. Through an app on your smartphone, the EyeQue Insight will check the clarity and sharpness of your vision. You will also be able to check your own prescription, to see if it is still correct.

EyeQue is dedicated to making eye care simple and accessible to as many people as possible. Currently, the Personal Vision Tracker is available on Amazon for $29,99.
