Prescription Eyeglass Buying Checklist

Prescription Eyeglass Buying Checklist

One of the best places to start is with our glasses guide this will give you a nice breakdown.


Before Buying

Get an up-to-date prescription for your eye glasses, if you already wear prescription eyeglasses. If you don't you will need to get one from
an Eye Doctor (tips to finding the right Optometrist)
Unless you are looking for reading glasses.

If you have frames that you like and feel comfortable jot down the measurements

1)    Lens Width
2)    Lens Height
3)    Bridge Width
4)    Temple Width
5)    Frame Width

You will also need your PD (Pupillary Distance) Please see
how to measure your PD if this is not on your prescription.

Doctor's Visit

  • Make sure and ask for a copy of your prescription
  • If you need readers check with your doctor for any astigmatism correction if needed
  • Make sure the doctor has included your PD on your prescription (if not it's not a problem to measure this yourself)
