Meet with an eye doctor at a store near you to get a new prescription and check your eye health. This is a good option for those who:
  • need an up-to-date prescription (even if it's your first)
  • wear any glasses or contact lens prescription
  • have eye health concerns, including headaches or vision changes
  • are over the age of 4

Quick note: Virtual Vision Test is not a comprehensive eye health 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.
