    • How do I read my prescription?

      SPH or spherical is the term for refractive correction in your prescription. Minus (-) powers are for near sightedness and plus (+) powers are for far sightedness. If your prescription says "PL" or "Plano" in the SPH you should select a 0.00

      CYL or cylinder is the term for astigmatism correction in your eye. It can be a positive or negative value. If there is a CYL power there must be an axis value on that eye. If DS or SPH is noted in the CYL space on your prescription, you do not have astigmatism in that eye. You should enter 0.00 or DS in the CYL and the axis box will be voided.

      Axis refers to the angle of the correction for the astigmatism (CYL power in your prescription). The axis is a value from 1 to 180. If there is an axis value there must be a CYL value on that eye. If there is no CYL the axis will be voided and does not need to be filled. An axis value is usually written as 3 digits, if you have an axis of 3 it would be written as 003 on your prescription. No matter how it is written it is still a value of 3.

      ADD OR NVADD is the additive power needed for Meaning Near Vision, this is used to prescribe a multifocal or reading correction, measured in quarters.

      OD & OS The medical abbreviation OD, oculus dexter for you fans of Latin, refers to the right eye, whereas OS, or oculus sinester, is your left. Sometimes these two are simplified to R and L.

      PDIn order to customize your glasses, you have to figure out your PD, or pupillary distance, the distance between your pupils. Once we have this information, we can determine how to place your lenses in your frame. Just ask your optician; they should have your PD on file. You can also measure your PD yourself.Most PDs fall somewhere between 52-68, with the average being 60.

      PRISM Prism is the prismatic power used to correct vision displacement, like double vision. Most eyeglass prescriptions do not have prism correction. Prism is a measure in prism diopters. A prescription with prism prescription will have two values per eye. EyeD Optics is able to accommodate prism corrections with a range of 0.25 to 5.00 diopters in any direction or combination of directions. If you have a combination of the horizontal and vertical prism, the prism input may be more limited. Base Direction is usually written as BU for Base Up, BD for Base Down, BI for Base In, and BO for Base Out.

    • What is "PD"?

      PD In order to customize your glasses, you have to figure out your PD, or pupillary distance, the distance between your pupils. Once we have this information, we can determine how to place your lenses in your frame. Just ask your optician; they should have your PD on file. You can also measure your PD yourself. Most PDs fall somewhere between 52-68, with the average being 60.

    • What is pupillary distance?

      Pupillary distance or PD is the measurement from the center of one pupil to the center of the other pupil. Depending on they type of glasses you are getting you will have different numbers for your PD. Single vision reading glasses you will use your near vision PD which is your distance vision PD lowered by 3 millimeters (mm). Most PD measurements fall between 52-68 mm, with the average being 60 mm.

      Measuring your PD

      If your prescription does not include your PD or it is not available to you, you can ask a friend or use a mirror to help you measure your pupil distance. You will need a ruler and mirror to measure your PD. Print the ruler at the bottom of the page if you do not have one to measure your PD.

      • Find a mirror and stand about 8 feet away from the mirror.
      • Standing straight hold the ruler at your brow line.
      • Closing your right eye, line the zero of the ruler to the center of your left pupil.
      • Continue looking straight ahead, now close your left eye and open your right eye.
      • Read the mm number that lines up with the center of your right eye.

      When measuring your PD

      Measure your PD 3-4 times to get an accurate number. If a friend is measuring your PD, keep both eyes open and have your friend put the zero on the millimeter ruler over the center of one pupil, then measure the distance to the center of the other pupil. Do not look at your friend as they measure your PD, instead look at something 10-12 feet away.
