Attorney General Russell Coleman announced this week a settlement by Kentucky with Warby Parker over its Virtual Vision Test.

The Virtual Vision Test was launched in July 2021. The KOA immediately requested prompt investigation and enforcement of the test, because it failed to comply with Kentucky’s Consumer Protection in Eye Care Act.

The settlement requires Warby Parker to pay a penalty of $138,000, which could be reduced to $55,200 if there are no further violations for five years. From July to October 2021, the office of Attorney General Russell Coleman alleged, 69 Kentucky residents were “improperly given” Warby Parker’s online vision test.
