Vision Exams Can Detect Serious Eye Conditions - Smart Vision Labs

We are sure that you will love the speed, convenience and accuracy of taking a 5-minute Smart Vision Exam at one of the many locations you can find a self-guided vision test. Thousands of other people already have. Yet at the same time, you might be wondering . . .

Will a self-administered vision exam* tell me if I am experiencing cataracts, a detached retina, glaucoma, macular degeneration or other serious eye conditions? 

Strong Safeguards Are in Place

That is a very important question to ask. And the answer is that the safety of taking a Smart Vision Exam is supported by a robust set of procedures and safeguards to help assure that you, like all users, will receive appropriate screening for a variety of serious eye conditions . . .

  • Within hours, qualified Smart Vision Exam eye care physicians review the result all self-guided vision exams and immediately contact patients if they notice any conditions that require further examination or treatment.
  • Individuals with certain preexisting eye conditions such as cataracts and macular degeneration are referred to ophthalmologists and are not candidates to take Smart Vision Exams. The health questions will end the test once someone indicates they have any of these eye health issues.
  • Individuals with diabetes and certain other diseases are also referred to ophthalmologists and the self-guided exam ends.
  • Only individuals between the ages of 18 and 60 in good health are appropriate candidates to use the 5-minute Smart Vision Exam to check their vision. Individuals outside that age range are referred to see an eye doctor for a full eye healh exam.

Taking the Macro View of Distributed Eye Care

As we have written about previously on this blog, tens of thousands of people in America could be suffering from undiagnosed eye conditions, simply because they do not have access to eye exams. Our mission and our hope is that Smart Vision Labs will help provide vision exams and appropriate screening to all those individuals, no matter where they live.
