Eyes 4 Lives has developed a unique yet effective AI software solution to minimize/prevent Digital Eye Strain (DES), a group of eye and vision-related problems caused by our addiction to cell phones, tablets, and computers. DES is currently affecting about 65% of the Americans and is one of the hottest topics in the eye care and ergonomic industries, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic when just about everyone is staring at the electronic screens to work/learn remotely.
- We are the only effective solution that continuously monitors and nudges/coaches users of digital devices to better eye health.
- 12 patents issued in US, China, and Taiwan
- Collaboration with some of the largest original design manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of digital devices.
The American Optometric Association reports that 10 million eye exams are performed annually in the United States due to vision problems related to computer use. Digital Eye Strain (DES) currently affects about 65% of the Americans due to frequent use of cell phones, computers, and tablets .
DES symptoms include:
- Dry/burning eyes
- Visual fluctuation
- Light sensitivity
- Neck/shoulder pain.
If ignored, these symptoms could potentially result in permanent damages to both the ocular and musculoskeletal systems. DES has quickly become one of the hottest topics in the eye care industry, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when learning and working remotely has increased dramatically.
Eyes 4 Lives, Inc.’s initial proof-of-concept product, Dr. i-Coach®, is a patented sensor and software package that utilizes advanced AI and sits on top of a laptop or computer to continuously monitor the following 5 key risk factors for Digital Eye Strain:
- Blink Analyzer - warns the user if their blink rate gets too low, reducing dry eyes.
- Time & Break Reminder - tracks computer usage and reminds the user to take a short break, allowing the user’s eyes to relax.
- Distance Monitor - reminds the user if they are sitting too close to the screen, potentially causing additional straining and nearsightedness.
- Posture Monitor - warns the user if they are sitting at an inappropriate height, creating neck and back pain.
- Ambient Lighting - warns the users when the room/sounding lighting condition is not ideal.
When utilizing the embedded camera of future devices, Dr. i-Coach® nudges users to better digital device habits via prompts and alerts. Eyes 4 Lives coaches users on developing and maintaining proper sitting and screen use habits by providing instant summarized feedback and long term detailed scoring via proprietary metric, eyeQscore.
Users can easily see their electronic-device-using habits improve over time by checking the statistics page, or receive text/email alerts on their progress throughout the day. Dr. i-Coach is an easy way to add significant economic benefits to companies with large numbers of employees using computers daily.
We make money through two main facets, IP Licensing and SaaS Subscriptions.
