Why You'll Love the Vision Test
Frequently Asked Questions
Once you have completed the online vision test, your results are reviewed by a board-certified ophthalmologist or optometrist in the state you are located.
Yes! Visibly's online vision test is a prescription renewal service, so the doctor will want to know your previous prescription so they know what they need to renew for you!
After a licensed ophthalmologist or optometrist has issued your prescription, you will receive an email from Optimized Eye Care, Visibly's doctor network, with your prescription. Please note, LensFactory may not access your prescription. The only way we can obtain it is by you submitting it to us with an order.
You also can access your prescription anytime by logging in to your Visibly account.
There are certain age, location, and vision health requirements to qualify for taking our vision test. In order to be eligible for Visibly’s online vision test, you must:
• Reside in a U.S. state where our test is currently activated (you can view the list of activated states here
• Be between the age of 18-55 (you can read more about our age parameters here)
• Have no health conditions that may affect your vision
The vision test can be taken from anywhere there is an internet connection available, including the comfort of your own home. However, there are states that have regulations on healthcare technology and telehealth which restrict the use of Visibly.
Our service and standards of practice are consistent with all applicable regulations on both state and federal laws. Below is a map that shows the states in which residents can or cannot take the online eye test.
In most states, your vision prescription expires one year after it has been issued and a renewal is required annually in order to purchase glasses or contacts. You should always renew your prescription prior to purchasing new glasses or contacts (you can get started here!)
It's also important to remember that renewing your vision prescription is not the same thing as a comprehensive eye exam with an eye doctor, which should be completed regularly.
Visibly is not a replacement for a comprehensive eye health examination. Visibly’s licensed Ophthalmologists and Optometrists use Visibly's online technology to evaluate a patient's visual acuity and a portion of the ocular health profile and issue a prescription for corrective eyewear, where clinically appropriate. Visibly's services are limited to patients between the ages of 18 and 50 who are in good health. Because Visibly's services are not a replacement for an eye health examination, we encourage everyone to obtain a comprehensive eye exam at least once every 2 years. We prohibit patients from taking a Visibly exam more than 4 consecutive years without certifying that they have received a comprehensive eye test first.
