16 How do I go about measuring my pupillary distance (PD)? FAQs
Its much more accurate if you can get a friend to to this for you. To find your pupilary distance (P.D.) take an ordinary rule and rest it on the top of your nose and measure the distance, in millimetres, between the centres of your two pupils (black spots in the centre of your eye). The number should be somewhere between 40-90 millimetres. Most peoples PD is 63.Enter the P.D on the prescription page. To see how wide your face is, just look in the mirror with an ordinary rule resting on the top of your nose and measure the total width of your face
17 The optician measured my PD and gave me two numbers. Which should I enter? FAQs
If the Optician or Optometrist has given you two numbers for your PD, then you have both distance and reading PD, - or near and far PD. Usually there is a difference of 2 between the two readings. You will notice you eyes go squint when you look at a a pen that touches your nose, so the PD is closer Example: 63-61 The higher number is for distance and the lower number is for near vision reading only. Example: 31.5/32.5 Your PD was taken monocular (one eye at a time) --first number is right eye OD --second number is left eye OS. If this information was provided to you, put it in customer notes on the order form and we will use it to make your glasses. We will use the near PD measurement for your reading glasses.
