About Quadrant Eye

Eye care is at the forefront of innovation. Necessity, after all, is the mother of all invention: more and more of the global population, young and old alike, is suffering from diabetic eye disease, nearsightedness, and other chronic conditions.

It is critical that we increase the reach and availability of high-quality eye care. While online eye care might seem counterintuitive (what about all those gadgets? what about that air puff test?) it is the logical starting point for the eye care revolution.

Online eye exams, when used correctly, can improve eye health outcomes. They can help detect otherwise unknown eye problems. They can also save patients time, money, and stress by providing important services like triaging acute issues and renewing prescriptions.

Quadrant Eye came about after Dr. Quinn Wang, a Duke and UCSF-trained ophthalmologist, cared for a patient who went blind during shelter-in-place. A mix of fear, confusion, and lack of insurance prevented him from receiving the appropriate care. Had he known about the emerging existence of online eye exams, his story would have had a dramatically different outcome.

Quadrant Eye wants to make sure this never happens again. We're here to change the story of eye care for good.

Our mission is simple: to bring eye care to you.
