How do I get my prescription?
If you do not know your prescription, you can visit your local optician or optometrist and ask them to conduct an eye test. When you are finished, be sure to ask for a copy of your full prescription, including your PD (pupillary distance)
Eye tests are available at most opticians, however please be aware that not all opticians offer one-time eye tests. Please make sure that your eye test is comprehensive (which should include the use of an eye chart) and that you leave with all of the relevant information:
- The sphere (S, SF or SPH) and/or cylinder value of each eye (C or CYL).
- If there is a cylinder value, then there must also be an axis value (A, As, AXI, AXS or AXIS).
- The pupillary distance (PD) - the distance between the centre points of both pupils.
I can't see my PD on the prescription?
No need to worry! Sometimes, opticians will omit this from a prescription to make it more difficult for you to buy online (terrible, right?).
Simply get a friend to hold a ruler to your brow. Measure the distance in millimetres between the centre of both pupils. The average is around 63mm, but it can be higher or lower.
How do I submit my prescription?
Firstly, choose the frame style you like. You will see on the frame's page a small box with "Add Prescription" written beside it. Simply tick this box and options will appear.
You can either:
- Upload an image of your prescription
- Enter the values of your prescription using a simple dropdown menu
