Visibly becomes the first FDA-approved online vision test in the United States


CHICAGO, August 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Visibly, the developer of the world’s first digital home vision testing platform, is thrilled to announce that as of August 12, 2022, it has received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration for its Visibly Digital Acuity (VDAP) product. Visibly becomes the first FDA-approved online visual acuity test in the US market.

With their newly acquired 510(k) clearance from the FDA, Visibly’s telemedicine platform can continue to expand affordable access to eye care for millions of consumers. Consumers can access Visibly’s on-demand, self-administered visual acuity test using a combination of a touchscreen mobile device and an internet-connected computer. Consumers can take the test at any time and complete the full experience in approximately 6 minutes. Completed vision test results are made available to eyecare professionals immediately and securely, helping them to assess the best course of action for each patient.

“After many years of working with the FDA, we are thrilled to receive this clearance…” says Brent Rasmussen, CEO of Visibly. “…We look forward to fulfilling our mission to bring affordable and accessible eye care to the masses.”

Visibly will continue to offer a convenient and affordable way to assess vision at home.

Paul FoleyCOO of Visibly, commented: “We are delighted to have reached this milestone. Our performance data, including our multicenter prospective clinical study that evaluated the safety and efficacy of VDAP versus an ETDRS visual acuity test, demonstrated that the safety and efficacy of VDAP is substantially equivalent to that of its predicate device. The clinical performance of the VDAP will help eye care professionals assess visual acuity remotely and connect patients to care in a way not previously available.

Visibly looks forward to accelerating its mission to partner with leading optical organizations to provide eye care professionals and their patients with a convenient and affordable way to get insight into people’s vision quality from their own homes. .
