Click on "Developer Website" or "William Lewis Website" below to see VeinSeek Pro in action! VeinSeek Pro is an augmented reality 'vein finder' application for your smartphone. ---------------------------------------- Instructions for first-time use: 1) Hold your iPhone at least 10 cm (4-5 inches) away from the skin. 2) Turn the flashlight on by pressing the flashlight icon at the bottom left of the screen. 3) Adjust the contrast with slider to the *lowest* setting that allows you to see veins well. 4) If you still can't see veins, try a physical maneuver; lower an arm vein below the level of the heart, or use a tourniquet, for example. 5) If all of the above fail, try looking at a different site. VeinSeek will not perform as well as ultrasound for deep veins. ---- Follow us on twitter: @VeinSeek ---- Read reviews on our website: www.veinseek.com Please leave us a review on the App Store!

  • Waste of money! DO NOT BUY!

    I’d give it zero stars if I could. This app is absolutely worthless! Wish I could have tried it first, then I’d have saved $5.00! I tried it numerous times in various lighting. Couldn’t even see any veins. Adjusted the contrast and still couldn’t see veins that were visible under normal lights. Save your money and buy one of the commercial vein lights!
  • Works for what I use it for—but...

    If you have tattoos you won’t have as great an experience with it. I mostly use this where I don’t have any now, because trying to see veins through ink with this just highlights the tat in white like one of those invisible ink lights. The picture is extremely faint and grainy, but it’s great for a general idea of where to look. I don’t really love that I spent so much on this, but it’s definitely not worth deleting. I’ve gotten some good help from this thing and I recently recommended it to a friend too
  • Middle of the point scale @ kinda

    I have to say that this app takes some getting used. You have to play with angles, lighting, distance and yes the phone too. Although I did have some difficulty as I couldn’t seem to get the results nearly as clearly as in the example. I’m in the middle of the recommendation spectrum here. Not sure i’d recommend it, but also not sure that I would shy anyone away either. Let’s me close this way; In my opinion… It’s not ready for prime time with the pros, but it’s a mighty good first step and something to play with around the house for experiments and “hobbies”. P.S. It's very easy to get "stuck" on this for a long while. Keep an eye on ur obsessive self my children.
  • Doesn’t work in patients with poor accesss

    Tried to use it several times but failed every time to locate any vein.
  • Terrible

    The technology is garbage. It only shows the most superficial of veins that you can see clearly without the app. This adds no benefit. Don’t waste your money.
  • Very good app.

    This app only works if your veins are already visible. I wasted my money on this cuz my veins aren’t visible to the naked eye. But if your veins are visible this app does help see them better.
  • It worked for me!

    I’m a paramedic and sometimes it’s crucial to get IV access. I have never been good at finding veins by feel, especially pediatric veins. I sweat bullets when starting IVs on kids, but I actually was able to locate a couple of good veins I couldn’t see on a pediatric patient that was fair skinned. I got the IV first try. It was well worth the price. It doesn’t make the stick for you, but it allows you to gauge a good area to start. Love this app!

    I work in a hospital lab and thought this would be interesting to try. The large veins that I know are there don't show up at all. Yes, I held it far enough away. I tried it in good lighting on a variety of patients and positioned it in every way imaginable, and I didn't find this app to be useful in locating veins for blood draws. Might be useful for other applications, but not for a clinical laboratory.
  • Concerned that this actually works.

    I'm a physician. I have a handheld ultrasound machine 15K not including the cost of my linear probe. But I bought this to see if this actually works. I'm a bit concerned that it does work in the middle of an IV drug epidemic since anyone can buy this, I hope this doesn't help people overdose. I think this has the potential to be dangerous. You do have to adjust the screen and hold of 6 inches from the Arm like the developer said in a response to a poor comment. I can see this being useful although not as good as the vein finder or an Ultrasound if you don't have access to either it is well worth the $5. What is really needed is this technology to be an app for smart glasses for it to be optimally useful. Imagine your nurse starting your IV with a VR headset with camera only augmented vision to find your veins. That would be cool.
  • Wow! Unexpectedly good.

    Very much worth the $5. My charge nurse asked me to start an IV on a patient that wasn't mine, edematous, and a very hard stick. Got it on the first try without a visible vein (only found in with Vein Seek Pro.) Marked my top and bottom point and aimed between the lines. Went a little crazy and decided to check all the staffers veins too. Works great on light, medium, and very dark skin! It's not going to keep veins from rolling but the finding is much easier. The only con I had was that it didn't work well on folks with extensive tattoos on their forearm. Ink interferes with the light spectrum. Other than that, worth every penny!
