How to measure your PD

The Pupillary Distance or “PD”  measures the distance between your pupils, measured in milimeters. This guarantees the optical center of your prescription lenses is in the correct spot. 

Your prescription may have your PD already listed. If not, use your friend or a mirror to help you take the measurement.

When you wish to measure this yourself, the guide below will arm you with simple, step-by-step instructions to measure your PD at home.

In the example image above, the PD measured 59. Here is how that was determined:

  1. Stand approximately 10 inches from the mirror.
  2. Holding your head straight and still, place the millimeter ruler against your brow.
  3. With your right eye closed, line up the ZERO mark with your left pupil.
  4. With the ruler on your brow, next close only your left eye and read where your right pupil lines up.  
  5. This is your PD.

Measure 3-4 times for accuracy and simply use the average. A typical range for children is 43-53, and for adults it is 54-74.
