Earlier this year, I discovered the fact that - "According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. About 64% of them wear eyeglasses, and about 11% wear contact lenses, either exclusively, or with glasses". This news intrigued me. So, I starting devoting my free time researching on the effects of blue light (HEV). And since Americans are number one consumers of blue light emitting devices, I decided to develop an app that can measure user's eye sight.

What it does

Is a quiz game intended to diagnose the eye health of a user & connect them to eye specialists & provide them with posts/remedies to improve their eye health.

How I built it

  ## Prelude - I developed the current version of this app with the intention of  conveying my idea. It is just a model prototype. I haven't focused much on front end development due to a strict schedule.

I build it using HTML and Java script. It is plain and simple intended to convey my idea.

Challenges I ran into

As said, I couldn't bring out all the features I planned to add in my app.I couldn't focus much on the front -end development which is contrary to my previous plan of making the app using React.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I managed to make an app in a matter of couple of days with an intention of bringing change on eye health graph of American population.

What I learned

To develop a dynamic web app, takes hours of creation and debug. Through out the process, a developer kind of compromises some of his ideas with new simple ones to avoid making the app more complex and susceptible to bugs.

What's next for How good is your Eyes?

In the near future, I will be focusing on the front-end development using React ( a face book friendly framework).The upcoming features I plan to add include:-

1) "Share" option to share the score of user. 2) Strategic game - with more exciting new series of challenging questions. 3) Recommending the user with tips and posts to improve one's eye health. 4) Connecting the user with a eye specialist for improvising one's eye sight.
