BLINKER / Eye health care glasses


Increased smartphone penetration and increased mobile device usage time caused many people to be exposed to environments vulnerable to eye health. These environments can cause CVS and dry eye syndrome. Many people are already suffering from this disease. Evaporation of dry eye syndrome can be prevented through a definite blink. BLINKER checks the blink of an eye and helps to consciously check the eye health through a linked device if an unhealthy eye environment persists for a certain period of time. Through the weak vibration of the device and alarms from the app, users can receive immediate feedback for conscious, complete blinking.
