I need help with my Pupil Distance. Eye doc wants to charge me $25 just to measure there nuts.

I need new glasses and lenses. I found them super cheap through the aafes exchange $200 even. Instead of paying $220.50 at the eye docs office. i didnt even know about these pupil distance thing. and they want to charge me for it too? She never said anything in person when i went to look at the glasses. I have a ruler but i cant figure it out. it says 8mm from one pupil to another. that makes no sense. its a Inches and MM ruler my DD got at school. Im not paying someone to measure them. thats ridiculous. and the website i want to order them said I NEED the pupil distance info or i can be straigning my eyes when i see. so, how do i measure them then? What kind of Ruler do i need?

  • Do you have an old pair of glasses that fit? The frames should have the size information written onto the sidepiece. You can find a guide online to find which measurement is the pupil distance.

  • What PP said. If you can't find an old pair, use a ruler and have two different people measure carefully, then take the average. You want them to measure from the middle of one pupil to the middle of the other one. Most rulers have mm, maybe you could pick up a cheap one a the $ store or something.

    Have you checked You can get a pair MUCH cheaper than $200.
