HOW TO MEASURE PUPILLARY DISTANCE FOR GLASSES
Your pupillary distance, or PD is the distance between the center of one's pupils. At Eye Columbus, we only work with optically superior products and lenses. Therefore, in order to provide our customers with the best vision possible it is very important that we have the most accurate PD measurement.
How To Measure Your PD For Glasses at Home?
How can you accurately measure your own PD at home? The answer is, you can't. Specialist like Optometrist and Opticians invest thousands of dollars in equipment to measure PD and account for key measuring concepts such as accommodation, convergence, and strabismus.
Other factors such as lens wrap, vertex distance, and panto tilt are all taken into consideration by a professional.
If you do not know your PD please visit a reputable Optometric Practice and ask for it. This service comes with a small fee at times ($50). This small price is worth it to assure the most accurate prescription possible.
A PD that is not measured correctly, even off 2mm can lead to headaches, eyestrain, and other troubling vision disorders.
A PD is measured as part of every Lifestyle Eyewear Service at EyeColumbus locations. This service, performed by trained professionals is $49 and is included with every in-store eyewear purchase.
