Prescription Details:

 

Please ensure your script has a:  ‘PD’ (Pupillary Distance) measurement on it, as we cannot make up your glasses without it!  (In some instances there are two 'PDS', please ensure you include both)!  Please complete our ‘prescription’ requirements form, exactly the same as set out on your prescription!  Some prescriptions will have details that will be entered into all of our boxes!  Others will not have details to go into some of our boxes!  This is because some prescription requirements require two corrections in a lens, others require only one!  Some prescriptions will have an ‘ADD’!  Others will not!  Some prescriptions may have an ‘Axis’ on them, this maybe on both eyes, it may also be on one eye and not the other!!  Some may have no ‘Axis’ requirement at all!  The first rows of numbers on your prescription are for the ‘Right’ Eye!  And the second rows of numbers are for the ‘Left’ Eye!!  The ‘Add’ is the same for both Eyes!  In the rare event that there are two ‘Adds’, one of these is used for making up ‘Intermediate’ or Computer glasses!  The lower of the two sets of ‘Add’ numbers are used in this case!

PLEASE NOTE:

SOME PRESCRIPTIONS MAY HAVE:  TWO NUMBERS IN THE ‘PD’ SECTION – PLEASE ENTER BOTH, IF THIS IS THE CASE!  Eg:  59/56

THESE ARE ALL VALID EXAMPLES OF PRESCRIPTIONS! 

PLEASE NOTE:

SOME PRESCRIPTIONS MAY HAVE:  TWO NUMBERS IN THE ‘PD’ SECTION – PLEASE ENTER BOTH, IF THIS IS THE CASE!!  Eg:  59/56


Sph (Sphere):

Some prescriptions have only this correction requirement, in the lenses!  There will always be numbers for this even if written as ‘000’ or ‘Plano’!

 

Cyl:

This is a correction in the lens for an astigmatism not all prescriptions have this requirement!!  Some may have this requirement in:  ‘Both’ or ‘One’ eye only!  Enter this number in the ‘Cyl’ Box – if present on your prescription!

 

Axis:

This is the position that the ‘Cyl’ number is placed at, in the lens!  If your prescription does not require a ‘Cyl’ number, there will be no number written it the ‘Axis’ section!  In this instance there will only be an:  ‘Sph’ number present on your prescription!

 

ADD (Reading Addition):

This is generally used when making up – Bifocal or Multifocal lenses!  Where a person requires both a ‘Reading’ and ‘Distance’ prescription!  In some instances it is used for ‘Reading’ glasses only!  If you require ‘Reading’ glasses only, and this is the type of glasses you require from us, we will know to use this ‘Add’ number to make up your ‘Reading’ glasses!  If your Optometrist has given you a prescription for ‘Reading’ glasses and has not written an ‘Add’ number on your prescription – They have already incorporated the ‘Add’ number in your prescription!

 

PD (Pupillary Distance):

This is the distance between you ‘Right’ and ‘Left’ pupils!!  This ensures that the Optical Centers of your lenses are placed directly in front of your pupils!!  This measurement is required on all prescriptions!  Often left off prescriptions on purpose, so please phone your Optometrist and ask for this measurement, if it is not present on your prescription!!  If the Optometrist states he does not have this measurement – return to the practice and ask them to measure it for you!!  This will take no more than a minute and should not require an appointment!!  This is part of your prescription and you are entitled to this measurement!!  There should be no charge for this, as this measurement should have been done as part of your initial consultation!  

PLEASE NOTE:

SOME PRESCRIPTIONS MAY HAVE:  TWO NUMBERS IN THE ‘PD’ SECTION – PLEASE ENTER BOTH, IF THIS IS THE CASE!  Eg:  59/56


Distance:

Distance Glasses are used to see objects etc in the Distance!

 

Reading:

Reading Glasses are used for Reading and Working up Close to Object etc!

 

Intermediate:

Intermediate Glasses are for Working at a distance around an arm’s length away!  Generally used when working at Computers, as they are a bit further away than your normal reading position!  Please make sure your prescription has been specifically made up for these!

 

Bifocals:

Bifocals have two prescriptions in the one lens!  The top portion is for Distance vision and the segment in the lower portion of the lens is what you look through to Read!

 

Multifocal:

Multifocal otherwise known as Progressive lenses or Graduate lenses, are for both Distance and Reading!  The top portion is for Distance and the bottom portion is for Reading!  Unlike Bifocals they do not have a segment that is noticeable at the bottom of the lens!  As you look downwards through the lens, it gradually gets stronger, until you get the full reading strength near the bottom of the lenses!

 

Hard Coating:

This coating helps to protect the surface of your lenses!  Helps to protect against scratches!

 

Anti Reflective/Multi Coat:

This coating reduces reflective light from traveling through your lenses to your eye!  Reflective light is of no use to the eye!  This coating is beneficial to people who work in artificial light and for those who work with computers!  Also beneficial to those who have problems with reflected light while driving at night!  It improves the appearance of glasses, especially for those that have thicker lenses!

 

Reduce my lens thickness/Make my lenses thinner:

This is achieved by using different lens materials, than what standard lenses are made of!  The material is commonly known as Hi Index!  To put it into technical terms – the lens material has higher refractive qualities than a standard lens material!  Therefore reducing thickness, weight and achieving the same prescription as the standard lens material!

PLEASE NOTE:

GENERALLY NOT NEEDED ON PRESCRIPTIONS BELOW '+' or '-' 3.00!  AS COSMETICS AND WEIGHT OF GLASSES ARE NOT A MAJOR FACTOR!

 

Photochromic/Transitions:

These lenses go dark outside in the sunlight!  They then return to normal once inside again!  They tint either – brown or grey when outside!

 

Polarised:

Polarised lenses cut out Horizontal light!  This is the glare that is reflected off the water, roads etc!  (Available in both Grey and Brown)!

Orders for new frames and lenses are shipped within: 7 - 10 working days of payment being received!  If you are sending us your 'Own' frame, your glasses will be shipped back within 7 - 10 working days of receiving your frames and payment! Thank you.
