Don't Have a Prescription

If you don't have a prescription at hand, you can go to your local optician to get your eyes tested and ask for your prescription. They are obliged to give you one. Of course, you can place your order first and later email the copy of your prescription to us when you get one, which can help us arrange your order in advance.

Ways to Provide Your Prescription

Currently, there are two ways for you to provide your prescription to us. The first one is that you can enter your prescription directly on our website. Of course, if you find it hard to understand your prescription or worry that you might make some mistakes while entering, you can choose to email us the copy of your prescription to us after you place your order.

Terms & Abbreviations on Your Prescription

On your prescription, there are several terms / abbreviations which might be confusing to you. The first column is SPH (Sphere); it is used to correct both near and distance vision problems. Sometimes, you can see a minus sign "-" or plus sign "+" ahead the number. The minus sign means that you are nearsighted and plus sign farsighted. The second column is CYL (Cylinder) and third AXIS. These two columns are used together to correct astigmatism.

Symbols on Your Prescription

Minus Sign (-), used to indicate nearsightedness and nearsighted astigmatism. Plus Sign (+), used to indicate farsightedness and farsighted astigmatism. DS, used to indicate that you have no astigmatism. Sideway "8", used to indicated that you have no problem with your near and far vision.

What is PD?

PD, also called pupillary distance, refers to the distance between the centers of your pupils. As for adults, PD won't change so you don't need to measure it every time you want to buy a pair of prescription glasses

Don't Have a PD?

Not all the opticians write down PD for their customers. You can ask for it from them after the eye test. If they are unwilling to tell it to you, there's an easy solution. You can choose the average number 63mm for distance vision and average number 60mm for near vision. Of course, you can also try to measure your PD on your own. However, for strong and complex prescriptions, we highly suggest you get the correct PD.

How to Measure Your PD on Your Own?

1. Find someone to help you with the measuring.
2. Ask the one who helps you to sit at the same height as you do and face you.
3. Let them hold a millimeter ruler on the bridge of your nose, make it parallel with your face.
4. Let them try to make the rule "0" in line with the center of your left pupil.
5. Ask them to read the measurement between the left pupil and right pupil.
6. Repeat it 3 to 4 times for accuracy.
