Now there’s an app for that.
If you have an iPhone, you can use the Virtual Vision Test, the new version of Warby Parker’s Prescription Check app, techthelead.com reports.
The user needs to have on hand their current glasses or contacts, as well as a copy of the current prescription. After downloading the iOS app, the user just needs to take the test in a quiet, well-lit space.
Users will still need to validate the results of the test with an eye doctor. If the results indicate good vision, then a $15 fee will be charged for a prescription renewal. If not, users will receive a recommendation to visit their doctor. The app will work only for people between 18 and 65 years old who have a single-vision distance prescription and no chronic eye diseases.
