What Do All Those Numbers on My Glasses Prescription Mean?
Reading Your Eyeglass Prescription
It may look incomprehensible, but in reality, those numbers are easily decipherable. Basically, your eye doctor has written a series of numbers indicating the type and extent of your vision problem. For example, the spherical error (SPH) on your eyeglass prescription refers to how much correction you need if you are farsighted or nearsighted. If you have astigmatism, you’ll have a cylinder number in your eyeglasses prescription indicating how much lens power you need to correct blurry, distorted vision.
Multifocal Eyeglass Prescriptions
For people who need reading or multifocal correction, they’ll have an ADD (additive power) number scribbled on their prescription. And just for clarity, those “+” or “-” signs you see scattered around those numbers just tell our eyeglass prescription interpreters how much correction is needed.
Understanding Your Pupillary Distance Number
Ordering glasses online also requires your pupillary distance number, or the distance between the pupils. We need this information to determine where your lenses need to be placed in the frames you select. Check out EyeBuyDirect's guide for how to read your prescription.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
