Most of prescriptions provide PD number. If the prescription without PD, you can ask optometrist to provide it.
At worst, if your prescription didn't include your Pupillary Distance, and no way to obtain it from your optometrist. You'll still need to know it before you order your STMUSE glasses.
Don’t worry. We'll teach you how to measure it without Eyecare Professional!
PD, or Pupillary Distance, refers to the distance in millimeters between the center of one pupil to the center of the other. PD number is an important value to determine how to place your lenses in your frame.
If PD number was not provided on your prescription, please ask your doctor or optometrist kindly. They should have your PD number on file.
You can also measure your PD by yourself.
We strongly recommend you to consult your doctor or optometrist to get the PD if your prescription without PD number.
