I'm sure a bunch of people out there are wondering if they need glasses right about now. The problem for many people is that going to the eye doctor is expensive and takes a lot of time. A new service has turned up online called Opternative that will give you an online eye test and a legit prescription for glasses or contacts.

Once you get that prescription, you can take it wherever you want to have the glasses or contacts made. The test takes about ten minutes and costs about $35. The only potential drawback is that you need to pay for the test whether or not you end up needing glasses.

This is a real test according to the co-founder of the company, Dr. Steven Lee. Lee is an optometrist and he says that the Opternative test given uses a series of images that is able to tell what sort of eye problems you might have.

The test can determine if you have astigmatism, color blindness, contrast, and distance reading issues. The test takes details on the person before it starts to endure they are the proper distance from the screen. The $35 test fee doesn't include the glasses or contacts, only the prescription which is promised to be legitimate for getting your glasses anywhere.
