Has your glasses prescription expired? Use our Prescription Check app to renew it from home with your iPhone, laptop, and your current pair of glasses. This is Warby Parker’s telehealth service that, if you are eligible, allows an eye doctor to assess how you’re seeing through your current pair of glasses and renew your glasses prescription.
This may be a perfect service for you if:
-You’re between the ages of 18 and 50
-Your glasses prescription is for distance only
-You don’t think your vision has changed since your prescription was last issued
-You have a copy of your existing prescription (even if it’s expired) on hand
Here’s how it works!
(As simple as reading the eye chart at the doctor’s office—but from home.)
-We’ll ask you quick questions about your location, health, etc. to confirm if you can use the app.
-Eligible to proceed? We’ll pair your laptop (stand about 12 feet away) and iPhone.
-Then you’ll swipe through a test so our doctor can assess how well you’re seeing through your current glasses.
-If your vision hasn’t changed since your current prescription was issued, the eye doctor may renew it! You will be charged $40 for the prescription renewal.
-If your vision has changed, the eye doctor may suggest a comprehensive eye exam (you won’t pay for using the app).
-Either way, you’ll typically hear back within two days.
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.

So convenient!!!! So SMART!!!
I fell in love with Warby Parker and get at least 3 compliments a day on my glasses. But as you guessed, as soon as I wanted to add to my collection because they were sooooo reasonably priced I got an email from them saying my Rx was expired (which even them being on that is amazing) so I was like crap. Got to go do my yearly exam and I don’t have insurance so I usually have to go to Costco (which I am still grateful for because you do need to get comprehensive eye exams) which the app reminds you of constantly. But when I found out I could download this app and use it with my computer to confirm with a doctor that my prescription hadn’t changed for only $40 I was shocked! So I did it. It was so genius. Even how they have you measure the screen to your computer is sooooo smart!! My husband was watching me do the whole process and he was so impressed. AND they approved my Rx and it immediately went to Warby Parker and this time I went to and actual location (Abbott Kinney) so I could try on the whole collection if I wanted. They had all of my prescription info and just like that placed an order for two more pairs of glasses that will show up within a week I think. It saved me so much money and more importantly, TIME!! Thank you to whoever thought up this genius idea!!!!!
GREAT app - one suggestion
This is a fantastic app. It is easy and delightful to use and gave me a new prescription within 24 hours. This is especially wonderful because I needed a prescription update to get blue light glasses for working at home bc of Covid, and no place was open to get a prescription. Whole process took only half an hour!! The one small suggestion I have is for the last step. When you are supposed to choose your current glasses or upload a prescription, I chose my current Warby Parker distance frames which I had bought online using a distance prescription. The app said these were ineligible, that only distance prescriptions were eligible. I was confused, and almost gave up because I thought that my vision was too bad for app ( I have terrible nearsightedness and astigmatism). But I thought I would try uploading my prescription (the same one as I used for the glasses) and see what happened. Luckily I got a prescription!! So perhaps change the “ineligible” message to something less confusing because I nearly dropped off. But this is a small thing!! Thank you developers, PMs, and other relevant stakeholders for a phenomenal product!! You have really made my life easier and better!!
This app is great if you are eligible to use it (the faq on their website can tell you if you’re eligible before you download).
I have an outdated prescription and have been wanting new frames but I know how pushy the eye doctor can be when you ask for your script and don’t buy glasses from them so I’ve been putting off going. When I read about this app I was so intrigued!!
Overall this was such a smooth experience. I downloaded this yesterday, uploaded my old prescription, and took the exam all within a half an hour. By the end of the day I had a new prescription! Now time for new glasses!!
