Prescription Eyewear & Service

A: We kindly advise you to double check your prescription for accuracy prior to submission online.

For optimal vision, it is always crucial to start with an up-to-date prescription with a clearly stated Validity Date of less as 2 years old. Correct pupillary distance (PD) measurements are critical for great results, and Glasses Gallery is very excited to bring you our real time 3D Try On and PD measurement technology! With this unique technology you can try on glasses by using your webcam and you can also measure your PD.

A: We are unable to do this because we do not have the tools available for you to get an accurate prescription via the Glasses Gallery website. You need to obtain a valid prescription by a certified eye care provider.

A: The strongest prescription we are able to process is: 

Distance vision: -17.00 

Near vision: +3.50

Sports: +4.0 / -6.0 / CYL +-6.00 

Eyeglasses: +10.00 / -17.00 / CYL +-6.00 

Sunglasses: +7.00 / -10.00 / CYL +-6.00

A: To help you get your glasses as soon as possible, you can place your order first. We will need you to send us your most recent prescription (within 2 years) so that we can process your order and start crafting your lens. You can send your prescription to cso@glassesgallery.com. For faster processing please provide your order number and name.

A: Your contact lens prescription may differ from your eyeglass prescription, and using it for glasses could lead to severe discomfort. We need a recent prescription (within 2 years) from your eye care provider to process your order.

A: PD is the measurement (in millimeters) of the distance between the pupils of your eyes. Your PD values can be written as one number, known as binocular PD, if the left and right side have been added together. It may be two numbers (known as monocular PD) if the distance between your eyes and nose differs. E.g. 65 or 32/33.

A: Every eyeglasses prescription has an optical center. The optical center of your eyeglass lenses is the part that gives you the best vision, and it should be directly in front of your pupils. Your PD measurement is used to find that ideal optical center and provide you with non-distorted, clear vision.

A: Simply use our 3D Real-Time Try On technology! You can measure your PD right away. If you do not have a webcam or are using a mobile phone, please read our detailed guide here.

A: PD values are sometimes written as two numbers, known as a monocular PD, which reflects the distance from each respective pupil to the center of the nose bridge. 

Adding the two monocular PD values together equals to a binocular PD, which is the full distance between the pupil of both eyes in millimeters. However, monocular PD values cannot be reliably achieved by dividing the binocular PD in half. Faces are rarely perfectly symmetrical, and it is common for one eye to be further from the nose bridge than the other. Because Monocular PD values are more precise, they are required for progressive and bifocal lenses.

A: If you have two values underneath the pupillary distance (PD) header, it means your prescription was written using monocular PD. Read more about that here. OD (oculus dexter) refers to your right eye, and OS (oculus sinister) refers to your left eye.

A: Cylinder (CYL) indicates the amount of lens power for astigmatism. If no number is written down on your prescription in the CYL column, either you have no astigmatism, or your astigmatism is so slight that it is not really necessary to correct it with lenses.

A CYL value can be preceded with a minus sign for the correction of nearsighted astigmatism or a plus sign for farsighted astigmatism.

AXIS refers to the rotation of the cylindrical lens that is defined with a number from 1 to 180 (degrees). If an eyeglass prescription includes cylinder power, it also must include an AXIS value.
