Here are some quick pointers on how to find out your prescription for glasses:
- Visit your local optometrist and get a full eye exam. If you’re pressed for time, Costco and Walmart are generally pretty good about getting you in an out quickly.
- If you've had an eye exam within the last two years, you may be able to simply call up your doc and have them email or fax a copy of your prescription.
- Be sure to explicitly ask for your prescription as well as your pupillary distance (PD). The PD part is where most customers get hung up because optometrists typically only share this information upon request.
Happy glasses shopping!
