here's the deal...
We offer vision tests for glasses, not for eye health. See our FAQ to learn more.
Get a test, give a test. Locally.
Every time you get a vision test with Blink, it helps us deliver free vision tests (and glasses) to someone in your community in need.

Blink is as easy as, well, blinking.
Our process is a simplified way of getting your vision tested for glasses.
Book an appointment.
Pick when and where, we'll come to you. Even nights and weekends.
Take the 20-min test.
A friendly visioneer will come screen your vision and oversee the testing. They will help test your visual acuity, refractive error, and measure your pupillary distance (PD). If the screening indicates that new glasses make sense, they will send the report securely to a licensed optometrist for review.
Your personal information will be kept secure and private, in compliance with HIPAA.
Get your prescription from our optometrist.
Your vision profile and results will be carefully reviewed and you will receive a prescription by email from one of our experienced optometrists within 24 hours.
If you have a complication, they will refer you to a local optometrist for an in-person comprehensive eye exam.
Buy glasses anywhere.
With your new prescription and measurements, you can buy glasses anywhere, either online or in an optical shop.
