How to Read Prescription

How To Obtain My Prescription?

You can obtain your eye prescription from your local optician or your eye doctor. The doctor will provide you the details of your eye prescriptions for you to use when ordering your prescription glasses or contact lenses.

How Do I Read My Prescription?

There are a few standard terms used by optician to indicate the prescription reading. Don’t be scared of the jargon as we have a quick guide to all the tricky terms:
OD = right eye
OS = left eye
SPH = sphere or power; a minus sign (–) means that you are nearsighted, while a plus sign (+) means you are farsighted
CYL = cylinder; the amount of astigmatism
ADD = the added magnifying power applied to the bottom part of multifocal lenses
PD = pupillary distance (the distance in between your pupils in millimeters)
