Buy Glasses Without Prescription

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, however, all opinions are our own.

Have you ever wondered why ordering eyeglasses is such a hassle? From making an appointment, driving to the eye doctor, wasting time in the waiting room, only to be told that you need to spend over $300 on eyeglasses. What if you could skip that and just order glasses online for a lot less? What if you could correct your vision without a prescription?*

*We still recommend going to your eye doctor for a complete eye exam to check the health of your eyes.

Here is a helpful video on how to do just that:

Here are five easy steps:

Step 1: Order VisionCheck and Download the Correlating App

The VisionCheck is the second generation smartphone refraction testing device that gives you the power to test your eyes anytime, anywhere. 

Step 2: Complete Vision Tests

Once you download the app and have your device attached to your smartphone, you can begin testing! The vision tests are like a game. While looking through the device with one eye, you simply overlap a red and green line to form one solid yellow line.  

Step 3: Get Your EyeGlass Numbers

After you finish three tests on each eye, you will get something known as EyeGlass Numbers. EyeGlass Numbers are in a similar format to a prescription and you can use them to order your glasses online.

Step 4: Get Your Pupillary Distance

For those of you who don’t know what pupillary distance is, it is the distance between the center of your pupils measured in millimeters. You’ll also need this measurement to order glasses online. There are various ways to measure your PD, but the VisionCheck includes a set of PDCheck frames which allow you to measure your PD with a simple selfie! We have a tutorial video here if you need it.

Step 5: Order Your Glasses Online

You can take your EyeGlass Numbers and pupillary distance number and order glasses online at these online eyeglass retailers: Zenni Optical, Glasses USA, and EyeBuy Direct.


Your Vision at Your Fingertips

With the VisionCheck you can test your vision from home and use the results to order glasses online. Updating your glasses has never been easier!
