Patients love the Quadrant Eye experience.
“It was fantastic to be able to get an accurate vision test for renewing my prescription without having to physically go into an office. This is especially true during a pandemic, but now that I know how seamless the experience can be, I doubt I'll ever go back!"
“As a former medical IT professional, I have to say that I was very impressed by how simple and efficient this tool is!”
“Thanks to QE I was able to have my prescription renewed within hours to get an emergency pair of glasses, whereas my own doctor would have taken weeks just to see me. Email responses were quick and helpful. I will absolutely be using QE in the future.”
“It was much more intuitive and efficient to have my RX renewed through Quadrant Eye versus Warby Parker.”

Frequently asked questions about Quadrant Eye
How do I get a prescription?
It's easy! Take our 5 minute online vision test, which checks your vision and eye health. If your results pass the standards set by our licensed eye doctors, our team will email you a renewed prescription within 1 business day.
What can I expect during the online vision test?
Our exam starts with a quick questionnaire about your eye history. Then there is the vision check: this will require you to wear your current contacts or glasses so that we can get the most accurate assessment of your current level of vision. The last steps is to complete some eye health checks (e.g. to screen for color blindness, etc.) Please note that this online vision test cannot replace an in-person dilated eye exam, which should be performed regularly throughout your life.
Do I need a previous prescription to purchase?
Yes, we need your current or recently-expired prescription. E-prescriptions, photos, and screenshots are OK as long as they show your name, DOB, and date of issue.
What if I lost my prescription or don't have one?
This is very common! If you wear contacts, we just need a photo of the box that the contacts came in; your prescription can also be found on the individual blister packs. See examples below.
If you have lost your glasses prescription, please use one of the many free apps available online to read your prescription from your glasses.
Alternatively, you can contact us by clicking the chat button in the right hand corner below.
Can I use this service if I've never been to the optometrist?
If this is your first time getting prescription eyewear ever, we recommend you see a specialist in person! This will help you figure out what type of prescription you need. You will also get a baseline dilated eye exam, which is important to assess your eye health and make sure you don't have a serious eye problem, like a retinal hole or a dangerous freckle (e.g. nevus.)
Can I use this service if I'm over 55 years old?
If you are over 55 and have not been to your eye doctor in the past year or so, we recommend you see a specialist in person. As we age, the prevalence of certain eye disorders increases, so it's better to get more extensive testing done regularly.
Is an online vision test safe? How can you examine my eyes online?
The AAO states online vision testing poses "a low risk to patients" as long as an in-person comprehensive exam has been performed at an appropriate time interval (see above.) In addition, online vision tests can sometimes catch problems that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.
Quadrant Eye's eye health testing tools are built on the same tools used every day in ophthalmology and optometry practices around the country. All that is required is a laptop or mobile phone!
Why should I get my prescription renewed online?
Online prescription renewals save time and money while enabling better eye care habits. We email out renewed prescription in 1 business day or less. Additionally, for most healthy adults, annual visits for contact lens prescription renewals are not always necessary. This is especially true for those who have recently been rigorously fitted for contacts.
What states are you available in?
