Pupillary Distance (PD): Is It Really Important For Your Glasses?


Just like when you’re buying shoes or clothes,
having the right measurements for your glasses is extremely important! Incorrect measurements can lead to the inability
to see clearly out of your glasses and, honestly, nobody has time for that! One of the most important measurements your
optician will take is your pupillary distance (PD). Your pupillary distance is the measurement
(in millimeters) between the center of your pupils in both eyes. It’s important because it allows your eyes
to line up exactly with what’s known as the “optical center” of your lenses, providing
you with the exact prescription and vision that was measured by your doctor. While measuring your pupillary distance is
something that can technically be done yourself, I highly recommend visiting a trained optician
to perform this important measurement for you.
