Additional Information

Current Prescription
All orders require a copy of a current prescription.

Pupil Distance (PD) Measurement – somewhere between 54mm – 72mm
The pupil distance is the distance (measured in mm) between the center of your pupils when looking far away in the distance. All prescriptions require a pupil distance (PD) measurement. Your PD remains constant and does not change and is usually on record at your eye doctor. The average PD for an adult male is 65mm and female is 63mm. The PD may be noted as a monocular measurement somewhere between 26mm – 36mm, the first number denotes the right eye.

Segment Height Frame Measurement
Progressive no lined bifocals also require a segment height measurement. The segment height is a frame measurement unique for each frame on each person. The segment height is a measurement in mm from the bottom of the lens (of the specific frame ordering) to center of each pupil.

Note: Lined Bifocals – FT28 or FT35 can be set at a standard segment height of 4mm below center – 4BC.

Wrap Restrictions
Most of our wrap frames are not suitable for higher prescriptions with a combined power of 4.0 or above, sphere at or above 3.0 or a cylinder at or above 2.5. Use our wrap alternative models RX-EGM or RX-206 for these higher prescriptions or any flat style metal or plastic frame. Progressive lenses require a pupil distance (PD) measurement of 65 or greater. Not everyone can adapt to a wrap around frame as the curvature may cause some distortion.

Corporate Rx safety Order Form
Customized Corp RX Order form personalized to your specifications, employees can take it to their eye doctor or you may complete the form.

Lead Time
Once the order is placed, our lab completes them in 7 – 14 business days.
