Has your eyeglasses prescription expired? Want to take a vision test at home? Well, welcome! Introducing Warby Parker Prescription Check. This is our telehealth service that, if you are eligible, allows an eye doctor to assess how you're seeing through your glasses and provide an updated eyeglasses prescription.

At the moment, Prescription Check is available in select locations. If you reside in AL, AK, CA, CO, D.C., FL, HI, IL, KY, LA, MA, MN, MS, NM, NY, OH, OR, PA, TX, UT, VA, VT, WI, or WA, you could be eligible to use our service. In one of those states? Excellent. Download the app to answer a few easy questions about your current prescription, eye health, age—things like that—to determine your eligibility. If you are eligible to participate and the doctor issues you a prescription, you will be charged $40. (You won’t be charged if the doctor recommends that you get a comprehensive eye exam.)

If you are eligible, here’s what you need:
-your prescription glasses
-a credit card
-an iPhone (N.B.: the app performs best on iPhone 5s or higher and won’t work on iPads)
-a computer
-about 12 feet of space
-20 minutes (that’s about how long this whole thing takes)

Quick note: Prescription Check is not a comprehensive eye exam and it isn’t meant to replace visits to your eye doctor. It’s important to get your eye health examined periodically, even if you aren’t experiencing any vision problems, so please follow the advice of your doctor. Good to keep those peepers in check.

Warby Parker offers designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. With free shipping and free returns, it’s easy to find the best pair of frames with no risk (None! Zero! Zilch!). Plus: apps are fun. For every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

This App Needs Glasses


I got thru the questionnaire fine and was trying to set up the distance. I pointed my iPhone at the checkerboard on my laptop, kept backing up per the directions, got to a certain distance and it said “we can’t detect your screen.” I got as far as 9.2 out of 11 which I assume means number of feet away. But I was standing next to the 15’ mark of the tape measure I had on the floor next to me and somehow the app is still telling me I’m only at 9.2 (feet away) out of 11. Then it turns yellow and says “we can’t detect your screen”.

Yes, maybe because you had me back up so much, I’m now in Canada.

I shut off all the lights to avoid a glare. Same thing. I dimmed my laptop screen a bit. Same thing. I brightened my laptop screen a bit. Same thing. I took my iPhone case off. Same thing. I tried for 30 minutes to get it to stick. Nothing. Just me tripping over furniture in the dark. So now I need an orthopedic prescription, too.

Broken and useless


I've tried this thing three times and had the same error from up every time. It will say that the distance from my computer has changed (even though I haven't moved) and that it needs to reset the distance. Okay, fine, reset it then. Except it doesn't do anything from there. It just puts up a screen saying that it needs to reset the distance. No buttons to press, no instructions on how to reset the distance, and no ability to continue the tests. I kept tapping the screen trying to figure out how, exactly, one is supposed to reset the distance. Nothing happens, it just stays on that screen. The only thing you can do is to restart the app and begin the entire process all over again. I did this three times before finally giving up.

Seems like a neat idea and the actual tests were easy enough to do, but this app is completely useless until they fix this issue.

Super frustrating


It seems like a good idea but it’s not! It didn’t work properly. Constantly resetting distance, which I understand, but then it would freeze afterwards. My issue is why do you care what my prescription is? I’ve purchased multiple pair of glasses from you and my last prescription didn’t change but I don’t want to have to go to the trouble contacting the eye doctor because I’ve already lost the prescription they sent home with me. My kids broke my current glasses (purchased from warby Parker) and I need a new pair ASAP. Didn’t even do the try them on thing, every pair I’ve purchased have been amazing. Just needed a new pair quick. But that can’t happen. I’m paying for it what do you care what the prescription is?????? I dont get it. Do not use this app. It won’t even work. It’s not like you’ll loose any money, you’ll just get super frustrated and say screw Warby Parker for even teasing me with this option.
