Did you know?

Americans 40 years and older are at greatest risk for eye diseases.

By age 65, about one in three people have an eye disease that results in reduced vision and even blindness.

The most common conditions? Cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration. These diseases may not have symptoms in the earliest stages, so it’s critical to have regular eye health screenings to protect your vision or that of an aging loved one.

High-quality eyecare brought directly to you.

We believe that every person should have access to vision care that is accurate, safe, and affordable.

Our at-home eye exam is designed by QE Co-founder and Duke and UCSF-trained ophthalmologist, Dr. Quinn Wang. Along with our medical advisory board, Dr. Wang ensures that our process, technology, and licensed ophthalmic professionals meet the highest standards of care.

How our service works

Get an At-Home Eye Exam

Once you’ve registered for an exam with QE, our ophthalmic professional will come to your home. We will ask a few basic health questions, give you a vision test, and collect vital eye health metrics with our portable devices.

An Eye Doctor Reviews Your Results

One of our staff ophthalmologists will look over your results and check for early signs of disease. We’ll be reviewing your eye vitals, which include: visual acuity (VA,) pupillary response, and intraocular pressure (IOP).

Receive Your Results

Within 24 hours, we’ll email you detailed results from your eye exam, noting any signs of eye disease. If we have any concerns about your eye health, we'll help connect you with a specialist in your area for follow-up care.

Frequently asked questions about Quadrant Eye

For whom is this service intended?

Our goal is to make critical eye health exams available to older adults 65+, especially those with mobility or other issues that make it difficult for them to travel to a doctor’s office. We also support adults ages 40+ who are either in need of an eyecare exam for themselves or who are caregivers in need of an at-home eye exam for a loved one, friend or patient.

Who will be performing the eye exam?

All of our at-home exams will be performed by one of our licensed and vaccinated ophthalmic specialists. You can expect a visit with our technicians to take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete.

What does an at-home eye exam cost?

When you register for an at-home eye exam at Quadrant Eye you will share your insurance information with us. After we complete your exam, we will submit our bill to your insurance company directly for reimbursement. That means less hassle and cost to you!

Please note: If you've had an eye exam within the year, your insurance may not cover the cost of an additional screening. Please check with your insurance company prior to scheduling your at-home eye exam.

What can I expect during an at-home eye exam?

Our exam starts with a quick questionnaire about your eye history. Then there is the vision check: This will require you to wear your current contacts or glasses so that we can get the most accurate assessment of your current level of vision. The last steps are to complete some eye health checks to screen to see if you are at risk for cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and optic nerve disease.

Can I use this service if I've never been to an optometrist or ophthalmologist?

Yes. One of our licensed ophthalmic professionals will come to your residence to perform a vision test and collect vital eye health metrics with our portable devices. Following your exam, our staff ophthalmologists will look over your results to check for early signs of disease. We’ll be reviewing your eye vitals, which include: visual acuity (VA,) pupillary response, and intraocular pressure (IOP). If we have any concerns about your eye health, we'll help connect you with a specialist in your area for follow-up care.

What are the most common eye diseases in people over 40?

According to the CDC more than 4.2 million Americans aged 40 years and older are either legally blind or are with low vision. The leading causes of blindness and low vision? Age-related eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.

Where is this service available?

We are currently piloting our at-home eye exam service in the San Francisco Bay area. If you are outside of this area but would like to try the Quadrant Eye at-home eye screening service, please let us know!

We believe the future of eyecare lives at home.

Quadrant Eye is committed to supporting our nonprofit partner, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
