Looking to buy a new pair of glasses or need to replace a pair because of broken frames with your current prescription? With the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the globe it may not be possible or practical to visit a local eye glasses store. Thanks to a new app from you can now easily order a new pair of glasses utilizing your current prescription from the comfort of your home!

The free to utilize Lens Scanner app which is available via Google Play and The App Store provides a convenient way to purchase glasses online not just during this public health emergency but when life eventually gets back to normal. In any circumstances not remembering your current prescription might, for instance, force you to have your prescription checked again by an optometrist at an eye glasses store, wasting not only time and patience but also money. Plus I've found from personal experience that some optometrists won't provide you with your pupil area distance in an effort to avoid customers going online to purchase glasses.

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.

Using the Lens Scanner app 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 prescription will be automatically saved and added to any glasses you’d like to purchase.


The main benefit of the Lens Scanner app is that you will save time and money by having your vision correction details checked in just a few minutes. The app is FDA listed, completely free of charge and can be used entirely at the convenience of the user. In just a few, easy-to-follow steps, you can get your glasses prescription along with a pair of designer eyeglasses anywhere, anytime.

I haven't personally used the Lens Scanner app yet. If my son needs a new pair of glasses before his current prescription changes though this dad blogger will absolutely try out this service. Especially, if we can't get out of the house!

You never know how kids might break their glasses whether from rough play or a freak accident. I do know that if my son's glasses are damaged he needs to get them replaced right away and the Lens Scanner app seems to be a smart and convenient way to take care of that.
