A Guide To Measuring Your PD and Eyeglasses

 

What is Pupillary Distance? Pupillary distance (PD) measures the space between the pupils of your eyes. Knowing this measurement is important to make sure your eyes match up with the optical center of your lenses. The average adult’s PD is between 54-74; kids’ are between 43-54.

 

How to Measure Your PD?
-Stand 8 in. away from a mirror.
-Hold a ruler against your brow.
-Close your right eye then align the ruler’s 0 mm with the center of your left pupil.
-Look straight then close your left eye and open your right eye.
-The mm line that lines up to the center of your right pupil is your PD.

 

Feel free to contact our doctors if you need any assistance or guidance.

 

An Even Easier Way to Measure:
Look into a mirror and using a washable marker/makeup dot the center of the pupils and measure how far apart they are with a ruler.  For Progressives, measure in mm how far the lower eyelid sits from center of the pupil for each eye. 

 If getting progressives, measure in mm how far the lower eyelid sits from center of the pupil for each eye.
