Measuring PD

Visionforsport help to measure your PD (Pupillary Distance)

This is the distance in mm between the centres of your pupils.

This measurement It is used to position the centre of an optical lens in line with your pupil centre.

You can either

  1. ask your eye care professional for your PD measurement
  2. Measure the PD yourself with the help of a friend. Looking ahead at a point in the distance, ask a friend to stand facing you resting a ruler on the bridge of your nose and measure in mm the distance between the centres of the right and left pupil. See the diagram below.
  3. Use an average PD measurement of 64 for a man or 61 for a woman.
