SmartBuyGlasses launches Lens Scanner App: Get your free glasses prescription – anywhere, anytime.

Getting your current prescription has never been so convenient! The Lens Scanner app makes buying your new glasses hassle-free and easier than ever.

When it comes to buying glasses online, people nowadays are always looking for a spontaneous and efficient experience. Not remembering your current prescription might, for instance, force you to have your prescription checked again, wasting not only time and patience but also money. 

In order to avoid these unpleasant situations, as well as to improve access to vision care, SmartBuyGlasses has launched a virtual eye clinic by introducing the Lens Scanner – powered by 6over6. The Lens Scanner is a free and user-friendly prescription reader application that allows users who already have prescription eyeglasses to extract their prescription directly from their phone, meaning that glasses wearers no longer need to go to an eye clinic to get their current eyeglasses prescription. Thanks to this new technology, eye care can be provided in a convenient and direct way.

How does it work?

The process is very easy. You just need 4 things:

  1. A smartphone with the Lens Scanner app installed, the app is available in both the Apple store and Google play store.
  2. A laptop or computer (with a 12” screen or larger).
  3. Your current pair of prescription eyeglasses.
  4. A standard size magnetic card for measurement.

Through the manipulation of light coming from your digital screen and use of the magnetic part of your card, the app is able to retrieve the optical parameters of your current eyeglasses. Once the app has finished scanning the lenses of your glasses, it will provide you with an accurate prescription. Your glasses prescriptionwill be automatically saved and added to any glasses you’d like to purchase.

What are the benefits of using Lens Scanner?
