Getting Started

To begin the online vision test, your customers will enter their prior prescription parameters, basic health history, and other vision-related details. Your (or our) doctors will use this information, along with their visual acuity results, for determining how well they’re currently seeing.

Taking the Vision Test

While wearing their current contacts or glasses, your customers will then take the online vision test using their computer as the vision chart and smartphone as a remote. Standing 10 feet away, they’ll proceed through a voice guided vision test experience which will measure the visual acuity of each eye.

Receiving a Prescription

Have your onsite doctors (or our network of remote doctors) review your customers’ test results. For those still seeing well, they can be provided with a renewed, doctor-signed prescription to purchase contacts and glasses in your retail store or from your website.

Visibly’s user experience is entirely web-based, so there’s no new equipment for you or your customers to worry about. That means you can offer the online vision test from any internet connected device in your optical environment. We recommend using a dedicated, private area of your store with at least 10 feet of space and dimmable lighting.


We’ll provide you with a unique link to your own Visibly-hosted landing page. Use this link behind any button or call-to-action on your website or social media. From there, your customers will be able to learn about and start the online vision test. They can take the online vision test anytime, night or day, without scheduling an appointment.

On Demand

Easily offer the online vision test to your off-site customers anytime, even at a moment’s notice, by sharing your dedicated link with them over the phone, via text, email, etc. All they’ll need to take the test is their smartphone, computer, and an internet connection.
