When you’re looking for your next pair of glasses, you’ll want to make sure you have the following information on hand to ensure that your shopping experience is fast, efficient, and easy:
- Have a copy of your glasses prescription.
- Make sure your Pupillary Distance (PD) has been included in your prescription.
- Use your current measurements from glasses or sunglasses that fit you well to find the products that will provide your ideal fit.
You can also create prescription sunglasses in a variety of tints, or add Light transitioning lenses to nearly any frame.
Pupillary Distance (PD) - What is a PD?
A Pupillary Distance (PD) is the measurement in millimeters from the center of one pupil to the center of the other. An accurate PD helps guarantee that your prescription is properly focused to ensure full clarity and correction.
Why can’t I find my PD on my prescription?
There are two reasons why a PD may not appear on your prescription:
The first is that you may instead have a prescription for contact lenses. If you see a brand of contacts listed on your prescription, then these parameters will not work for glasses. You will have to contact your eye care professional to ask for a separate glasses prescription to ensure that you have the most accurate vision correction.
The second is that your PD was simply not written on your prescription. If this is the case, contact your eyecare practitioner and ask them for your glasses PD. If you are unable to attain this number, you can measure your PD with a ruler.
Will I be able to purchase out of stock frames?
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that a sold-out product will be restocked, and therefore cannot offer a wait list for out of stock products at this time. If you see a frame you love, act fast to avoid missing out!
