The online glasses we offer are for adults, some of the ranges we offer are specifically mens others ladies. However there is an ever growing ‘unisex range’, so it is often worth looking at the whole catalogue as some of the glasses we have categorized as ladies, could equally be termed unisex.
Children’s glasses are not available on the web site for a number of reasons, one of them being children have widely ranging pupil distance measurements and further this measurement will change as they grow. Once we reach adulthood and our bones (specifically the skull) stop growing, the pupil distance will no longer alter.
To make online glasses we need a measurement called the PD. This is the pupillary distance, and is the distance between the centres of the pupils when looking into the far distance. This can easily be measured using a ruler, and it is advisable to have this measured by someone experienced at taking this measurement. It is possible for this measurement to be taken by anyone you nominate, but it should be repeated several times to ensure accuracy.
The higher the power the lens is in the glasses, the more important it is for the measurement to be accurate. For that reason we only offer a certain range of prescription glasses online. For powers over that it is best to send us your old / spare glasses so we can measure the distance between the centres of the lenses, and duplicate this in the new glasses.
Prisms are sometimes prescribed and generally we will not accept an order which requires prisms. If the prism is stable and a PD measurement can be supplied, then it may be possible to make this your glasses via a phone or postal order.
