Reading Your Eyeglass Prescription
Understanding The Numbers
Have you ever wondered, “what do all those numbers on my eyeglasses prescription mean?” You’re not alone. It may look like another language, but those numbers are easily decipherable with a little help! Your prescription indicates the type and extent of your vision problem. For example, the spherical error (SPH) refers to how much correction you need if you are farsighted or nearsighted. If you have astigmatism, you’ll have a cylinder number indicating how much lens power you need to correct blurry, distorted vision.
Multifocal Eyeglass Prescriptions
If you need reading or multifocal correction, you’ll have an ADD (additive power) number on your eyeglass prescription. And just for clarity, those “+” or “-” signs you see scattered around those numbers tell the expert interpreting your eyeglass prescription how much correction is needed.
Your Pupillary Distance Number
Ordering eyeglasses online also requires your pupillary distance number (often referred to as PD), or the distance between the pupils. We need this information to make sure your eyeglass prescription is located on the proper area of the lenses for the frames you select. Check out our guide for how to read your prescription.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
