Are Optometrists headed for the Job Centre? If a prototype application for Android based smartphones proves successful then they might be. Researchers at MIT's media lab have an app which lets users check their own eyesight by viewing their mobile phone screen through a special plastic lens device. The device costs under £2, a great deal cheaper than an appointment with your opticians. The eye test software on the phone works out the data needed to create their eye prescription in around 3 minutes. While it can't check for diseases like glaucoma, which are standard with UK eye tests, it can provide all the details needed to buy the perfect pair of glasses online.

Pupillary Distance is the measurement between the centre of your pupils. The provision of a P.D. measurement helps ensure your glasses frames fit comfortably. At the moment, although the law may change, the P.D. measurement is not part of your eyeglass prescription, this means that once you leave your opticians you don't really have everything you need to buy glasses online.
This is no longer the case! An optometrist from Denver, USA, has created a App for the iPhone called Pupil Meter that can measure your pupillary distance very accurately and provide you with a measurement in seconds. This means that you can purchase perfectly fitting glasses online and save a heap load of cash.
Here at OneSpecs we've been in contact with the inventor and he assures us that a Google Android and iPad version are in the making and will be available in the next few months. In the mean time if you have an iPhone or iTouch then you can download the Pupil Meter from the App store by searching for "Pupil Meter" or using the link below.
