About this app

Use the innovative Liingo Rx Reader app to read your vision prescription right off your current glasses. It’s super easy and totally free! 
* Get your prescription in minutes — without leaving home
* All you need: your current glasses, a smartphone, a laptop with a camera, and any standard-size magnetic card
* When you’re done, you get a discount code to use at!

How it works:
Scan your current glasses using a smartphone, laptop camera, and any standard-size magnetic card. 
We’ll tell you your sphere power, cylinder, axis, and pupillary distance (PD). 
Is this legit? Of course it is — our results have been clinically tested and proven to be as accurate as standard acceptable lensmeters and PD meters. 

You can use the Liingo Rx Reader if you...
- are a healthy individual, 18 years or older
- have stable vision and are happy with your current prescription
- have a single-vision prescription 
- have a sphere measurement between -6.00 and +3.00 
- have a cylinder measurement that does not exceed -2.50

You can’t use the Liingo Rx Reader if you...
- wear progressive, multifocal, or bifocal lenses
- have a prescription that includes a prism measurement 
- take any medication that affects your vision
- have any illness or condition that affects eye health (rely on your eye doc for that!)

Look — this app definitely doesn’t replace your eye doctor. It’s important to have an eye exam every 1 or 2 years, even if you aren’t experiencing vision problems. Liingo Rx Reader is designed to help with all those times in-between exams when you simply want to verify your prescription, or order new glasses online.

Frustrated!!!!! Tried eight times to get it to read my prescription. It worked one time but then when I couldn't log in because I needed my password resent, it shut me out of the whole thing and once you're at that point you can't get back to the previous step. You have to start over from the beginning. After trying three more times I just gave up.

Pretty easy to use, but after going through all the motions, it says your Rx is complete and to switch back to computer screen. Nothing ever comes up though on either screen or phone. Tried Edge and Chrome browsers and neither worked. Had an order ready to upload Rx, and never could complete it. Guess I'll try somewhere else. Hope I don't get charged for glasses.

Used this to get my PD measurement for a VR headset. Double checked with a ruler and mirror and the app was 100% accurate. I had to do the test in the app 2 times though. It didn't save my results until I was logged in to the website before running the tests. The first time, I tried logging in after the test, and it just said "results not saved" hence the reason there's only 4 stars instead of 5.
