Telemedicine can sound complex, but it actually serves to simplify our everyday lives, allowing us to more conveniently and economically access health care services.
We’ve designed an app that allows you to renew your contact lens prescription by taking a prescription renewal test remotely, from anywhere that’s convenient for you. If it sounds complicated, we’re here to tell you it’s not!
Our test consists of two parts. The first part is an up-close redness check video, designed to let the doctor get a good look at the whites of your eyes and make sure they’re healthy. It takes less than 30 seconds to complete.
Here’s a video tutorial for taking the redness check video:
The second part is an eye chart video, designed to assess whether you’re still seeing 20/20 in your current contacts. It’s taken at a distance, just like the chart you usually read from in your doctor’s office. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete.

Once you’ve completed both videos, one of our doctors will review them within 24 hours. If everything is looking healthy, your existing prescription will be renewed for another year, and you’re ready for new contacts!
