GlassesOn is a suite of optometry tools within a mobile application, developed by 6over6 on its mission to make vision care more accessible worldwide.
GlassesOn is registered as a Class 1 Exempt Medical Device on the FDA Medical Device Listings. However, GlassesOn does not provide medical advice, and the information it provides is for educational and informational benefit, and should not be considered a substitute for professional medical advice.
6over6 encourages you to share any information generated by the use of GlassesOn with your treating health care provider.
No. While GlassesOn retrieves your glasses prescription and measures the distance between your pupils, there is much more to your eye health than that.
During a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, and will evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
Often, eye doctors are the first health care professionals to detect chronic systemic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Therefore, using GlassesOn does not replace regular visits to your eye doctor.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has published official recommendations for eye health exam frequency. You should refer to their recommendations to inform your own decision.

An ‘out of range’ message means that, while we were able to measure your glasses parameters, the results fall outside of the ‘testable range’. This means we cannot be sure about their accuracy, and therefore cannot share them with you.
You will need to make an appointment with your vision care provider in order to get your prescription details, like you have done in the past.
The PD, or Pupillary Distance, is the distance (in millimeters) between your pupils. This measurement is important for your glasses providers, as it is used to fit your glasses to your eyes. The distance between the optical centers of your lenses should be the same as the distance between your pupils.
All you need is a smartphone, a magnetic card and a computer (desktop or laptop) with a 12” screen or larger.
