What You’ll Need

  • Mobile device only or computer and smartphone

    Our mobile only device solution uses voice commands to understand what a user sees on their screen. Our computer and smartphone solution allows users to use a smartphone as the remote control to tell us what they see on their computer screen. No app download is needed.


  • 10 feet of space

    Stepping away from your device lets us measure your distance vision. You’ll need to stand about 10 feet from your screen.


  • Prior prescription

    Your previous prescription is required, most of the time. Our doctors use it to ensure your new prescription is clear and comfortable. We're happy to get a copy from your last doctor, but it can cause delays.


What to Expect

You'll get a signed prescription to use wherever you buy contacts or glasses. Your personalized vision test will measure how you see, but won’t check the health of your eyes.

Setup for Success

Easy instructions guide you through every step. We’ll explain how to set up your room, how far to stand from your screen and why we need certain information.

Measuring Your Vision

We determine what you can and can't see with a series of tests. We measure your distance vision, check color vision and find astigmatisms.


Written byYour Doctor

An ophthalmologist licensed in your state will review your test results and prior prescription. Then, they'll write and sign your new prescription.
