Has your vision been a little bit off lately? Maybe your eyes have felt dry the past couple of days. Or do things seem a little blurry? A quick vision test might help you decide if you should make an optometrist appointment.

EyeXam is an easy way to test your vision. It's a free app that has several vision tests built into its platform. It can also help you find an eye doctor and schedule an appointment.

EyeXam offers six different types of vision tests. Tests for near-sightedness/far-sightedness, color blindness, and astigmatism are just a few of the options. There's a questionnaire for Chronic Dry Eye Disease too.

Tap "Find a Doctor" to find optometrists in your area. A map of locations will appear and you can tap a pinpoint to see the address, phone number, and hours of operation for a particular doctor. You can also message the office through the app, send an email, or set up an appointment. You can read their Yelp reviews too!

There are several other helpful features to the app. You can set a reminder so that you don't forget to order contact lenses or attend an appointment. You can research different conditions through the "EyeWiki" button. The "Offers" button features eye services and products at a discount.

The app does require you to create an account. It's used to protect your privacy so that the app complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. You can sign up with Facebook or create your own password.

EyeXam seems to take some of the hassles out of eye care. Click one of the blue buttons below to try it for your Apple or Android device. It will help you "see" what the problem is and where to go from there.
