Do I need a previous prescription to take Visibly’s online vision test?

How do I know if I’m eligible for the online vision test?
There are certain age, location, and vision health requirements to qualify for taking our vision test.

How often should I renew my vision prescription?
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.
Who reviews my vision test results and issues my prescription?
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.
How do I access my prescription from Visibly?
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.
You also can access your prescription anytime by logging in to your Visibly account.
