Contact your optometrist for a copy of your most recent prescription. If it has been more than 24 months since your last visit (or 12 months for contact lens prescriptions), book in to see your local optometrist and don’t forget to ask for a copy of your prescription.
If you’re purchasing glasses, you will also need to know your PD (pupil distance). This may be written on your prescription, but if not you can ask your Optometrist or Optical Dispenser to measure it for you. (Please note that as this is not considered to be part of a standard consult and your Optometrist or Optical Dispenser may choose to charge you to measure your PD). If this isn’t an option, you can also measure your PD yourself, or with a help of a friend.

If you’re purchasing frames with a non-prescription lens, simply choose “0” when asked to enter your prescription.
All our frames and standard lenses are the same price and you have the choice of what extras you want. Choose a frame that suits your style and if you’re unsure about the fit, have a look at the frame measurements. When choosing lenses, decide if you need a thinner lens or anti-reflective coating. Please note that some prescriptions are out of range of a standard lens, and our website will default to the lens you need to support your prescription.
