Let our Dispensing Optician Measure your Pupil Distance accurately
For the Pupil Distance options on the ordering pages select 'Let Extreme eyewear measure your PD' and we'll post you our specially designed glasses.
(Note: On some projects the PD option will state 'send ruler' this option will still get you the new PD Measuring Glasses)
All you have to do is take a simple photo of you wearing our glasses and emailing your photo to us.
Our Dispensing Optician will then accurately take your mono pupil distances. Our PD glasses allows our dispensing opticians to gain all the details they need to set up single vision and varifocal sunglasses / eyewear accurately.
Let us supply you with perfect vision.
This service is free for all prescription eyewear orders.
What is your PD?
Your Pupil Distance is the measurement between the centre of your right and left pupils in mm.
How can you find out your Pupil Distance?
- You maybe lucky enough to have been given this by your optician
- You can select to have our Pupil Distance measuring glasses posted to you. These will leave us on the same day you place an order 1st class post.
Why have we gone to the trouble of supplying PD Glasses?
Prescription glasses and sunglasses always work better when the centre of the optical lens is over your pupil. Not having this set up correctly can cause head aches and limit how well the glasses will work.
If you don't know your Mono Pupil Distances (this is two separate measurements for your right and left pupils) we strongly advise you select to have our PD Glasses posted to you. Varifocals with out mono pupil distances will not work correctly.
If you know your Mono Pupil Distances during the checkout there is a comment box, please write your right and left mono pupil distances in this comment box.
A pupil distance of 65 may have mono pupil distances of
Your total PD is still the same (65) But by using the separate mono pupil distances the centre of the varifocals will be positioned over your pupils making sure the clear corridor leading to your reading is in the correct position.
How do I receive PD Measuring Glasses?
In the PD options select ‘Let Extreme eyewear measure your PD’. The Digital ruler will be posted out on the same day as your order is placed to your shipping address supplied. (If your order comes in after 4.00pm the ruler will leave us the next day)
We will post the PD Measuring Glasses abroad but please allow a little more time to complete your order. The PD measuring glasses may take up to a week to get to abroad addresses.
