Why you need it
Your pupillary distance (PD) is the distance between your pupils. It is measured in millimeters (mm) and is usually between 50 and 70 for adults. The PD is needed to ensure that your vision is as clear as possible through your prescription glasses. Without the correct measurement, your vision through your glasses could be blurred, distorted or uncomfortable. Having the correct PD measurement gets more and more important the stronger your prescription gets.
How to get it
It could be printed on your prescription. If it is, you're lucky! Your PD is not required to be printed on your prescription.
You could go to an optical or optometrists office and get it measured. There is usually a fee charged for this service.
You can attempt to measure it yourself by following these steps:
Position yourself arm’s length from your friend or yourself approximately 8 inches (20cm) away from a mirror.
Close your left eye and align the 0 mm over the center of your right pupil.
Close your right eye and note the reading directly over your left pupil. That will be your PD.
Take a picture of yourself and let us measure it by following these steps:
Take off any glasses or face coverings and make sure you're in a well-lit area with a clean background
Position your camera so that it's straight on and your face is centered. Look directly at the camera.
Place any card with a magnetic strip under your nose and snap a photo. Make sure the card is touching your face, with the strip facing the camera.

Why Blue Light lenses?
Blue Light lenses are a special type of lens that blocks harmful light (similar to UV) from entering our eyes. In large doses, like from the sun, this light can damage the nerves of the eye and cause cataracts. Exposure to this light from digital devices can cause eye irritation and vision fatigue, a condition called Digital Eye Strain.
Even with 20/20 vision, you or your children may be suffering from Digital Eye Strain caused by hours of staring at computer screens, smart phones or tablets. With the increase in Telecommuting and "tele-schooling" we are all increased risk. These are common symptoms of Digital Eye Strain:
Reduced attention span
Dry or irritated eyes
Trouble falling asleep at night
Poor behavior in kids
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it's always a good idea to get a comprehensive eye exam to check for other potential issues such as the need for prescription vision correction or eye alignment issues. But in the meantime, simply wearing Blue Light lenses when using digital devices can improve visual comfort and reduce symptoms of Digital Eye Strain.
Taking frequent breaks and reorganizing your work space can also make an impact. Read more at ThinkAboutYourEyes.com
