Prescription & Pd

Understanding your prescription and entering it

  • Your eyeglasses prescription is a combination of various components that determine the precise correction needed for your vision.

    Here's a breakdown of the essential elements and how to ensure accurate ordering:

    Sphere (SPH):This value indicates the strength of your prescription for nearsightedness (-) or farsightedness (+).

    Pay close attention to the positive and negative values for sphere.

    Cylinder (CYL):If you have astigmatism, this value corrects the distortion caused by the irregular shape of your eye.

    Make sure to include the cylinder value and the axis value.

    Polarity (+/-):Pay special attention to the polarity values (+ and -) for both sphere and cylinder. Ensure you have selected the correct polarity during the order process.

    Axis:The axis value is crucial when cylinder correction is needed. It indicates the angle at which the cylinder correction should be applied.

    Remember, the axis number is only present when cylinder is present. If neither cylinder nor axis appears on your prescription, it means you don't have astigmatism.

    When entering your prescription, it's essential to double-check the accuracy of each value. Any discrepancy could lead to incorrect lenses. Once your prescription is entered correctly, proceed with selecting the appropriate lens type, lens material, and any additional features you desire. Our team is dedicated to crafting lenses that match your prescription needs precisely, ensuring your clear and comfortable vision.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions or require assistance. We're here to help you navigate the process and ensure you receive glasses that meet your specific requirements.

Where can I find my pupillary distance (PD)?

  • Pupillary Distance (PD) is the measurement of the distance between the centers of your pupils. It plays a crucial role in ensuring that your prescription lenses are accurately positioned within the frames. There are two types of PD: Single PD, which represents the distance between the center of one pupil to the center of your nose, and Dual PD, which represents the distance between the centers of both pupils. Dual PD is considered more accurate as it accounts for any potential asymmetry.

  • If you've purchased glasses online before, you may find your PD listed in a previous order or account information. Alternatively, if you've obtained glasses from your doctor's office, you can request your PD measurement from them. Dual PD, if available from a previous order, is ideal for accuracy.

    If you don't have your PD handy, you can easily measure it at home. For a step-by-step guide on how to measure your PD, simply click [here]

    This will ensure that your new glasses fit comfortably and provide optimal visual clarity.

    When selecting glasses for a high prescription, consider the following tips: Avoid Large Frames: Opt for glasses with a smaller lens area to prevent the edges of the lenses from appearing too thick.

    Consider Rounder Frames: Round frames can help minimize the noticeable thickness of the lenses in a strong prescription, offering a more balanced appearance.

    Choose Thick Plastic Frames: Opt for frames made from thicker plastic materials rather than thin plastic or metal. Thicker frames can help conceal the lens thickness more effectively.

    Avoid Rimless and Semi-Rimless Frames: These frame styles can accentuate the thickness of the lenses, so it's better to choose full-frame styles.

    Opt for Thin High-Index Lenses: High-index lenses are designed to be thinner and lighter, which can help reduce the bulky appearance of strong prescriptions. To explore the best lens options for your prescription, you can learn more [here]
