Contacts and Glasses Rx Difference

Many people wear both eyeglasses and contact lenses for vision correction. However, while both products work to correct your vision, the prescription for each one is different.

A prescription for eyeglasses includes the necessary information to make a set of lenses for a frame. For contact lenses, the prescription will also include the brand prescribed by your eye doctor, lens material, the curvature of the lens (base curve), lens size (diameter), and other necessary information.

One of the main reasons for the difference between glasses and contact lens prescriptions is the distance each sits from your eye. Contact lenses sit directly on the surface of your eye, while glasses are positioned roughly 10-12 millimeters from your eye. In addition, the expiration dates for the two vary; contact lens prescriptions are generally valid for one year from your exam date. Eyeglasses prescriptions are generally valid for longer than contact lens prescriptions, although it varies by state.

If you need a pair of eyeglasses made up and you wear contact lenses, check with your optometrist to see if s/he has a copy. In most cases, your eye doctor also examined you for glasses at your last appointment.

For fastest service at, have your eye doctor fax your eyeglasses prescription to 1-800-878-4627.

All About Astigmatism

Ever wonder what it means to have astigmatism? While the word “astigmatism” may sound intimidating, all it means is that you have some blurred vision. It’s a very common condition and most people have some degree of astigmatism.

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea of the eye is shaped imperfectly. This is to say that instead of the cornea being round, like a baseball, it’s shaped more like a football. Astigmatism can be easily detected and diagnosed during a routine eye exam.

Like nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism can usually be corrected with eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. The part of your prescription that says “CYL” or “cylinder” is the astigmatism correction determined by your optometrist or ophthalmologist.

At, we stock thousands of lenses and in most cases can ship out your glasses (including those with astigmatic corrections) the same day your order is placed. If you’d like to check if we have your lenses in stock, feel free to send an email to

What’s my PD?

P.D. is short for Pupillary Distance. This is simply the distance, in millimeters, between your two eyes.

We need it to make your new eyeglasses so that you’re able to see clearly. It helps us to line up the optical center of the lenses to the center of your pupil, ensuring the best possible vision.

You can obtain your PD a number of ways: 1) ask your eye doctor for it at your examination; 2) go into a local optical shop and ask for it to be measured; or 3) measure it yourself using our Printable PD Ruler at the footer of the page.

The average PD for an adult ranges between roughly 55 and 68 millimeters, although you may be slightly out of this range on either end. If you obtain a measurement that is far off (e.g. 45) you will want to measure again.
