There is no point in getting prescription glasses if the information you use is outdated. They will not do you any good. Before you make a purchase, ensure that you have an updated prescription from your optometrist.
Make a request for the Pupillary Distance (PD)
The pupillary distance refers to the distance from one pupil to the other. It is usually measured in millimetres.Most eye doctors will take this measurement but will not share it with you
unless you request it. After your eye exams Lloydminster, make a habit of asking for this PD measurement.
Measurements of your glasses
If you do not own a pair of glasses, your best bet to landing the best prescription glasses online is to try out some at your doctor’s office. Try out several until you get the one you like best.
