Additional Information about Prescription Details:
Here’s an example of what a single vision prescription would look like. For single vision lenses, please be sure to provide a Pupillary Distance (PD) as defined below.
Progressive lenses require some additional information placed in the Near Vision (N.V.) or sometimes labeled ‘ADD’ boxes. ADD identifies the additional power needed for reading when a progressive lens is being ordered. Both interpupillary pupillary distance (PD) and Fitting Height (FH) is needed to complete a prescription order.
Pupillary Distance, also called PD, is the distance in millimeters between the center of your pupils. Usually it is a number between 50-80 mm. It can also be written as the 1/2 PD (half-PD) which is two numbers, such as 32/32, where each number is typically between 25-40 mm. Often, doctors do not write the PD on their patient’s prescription. However, in many locations, doctors are required by law to provide patients with the PD if they request it. Next time you get your prescription updated, remember to ask your doctor to include the PD.
Fitting Height (FH) is the vertical measurement in millimeters from the most bottom edge of your lenses to pupil center. Fitting height only applies to Fit to Your Frames orders with xws.
Out-of-range prescriptions might be possible, depending on the geometry of your frames, your prescription and PD.
