Adding your prescription

My Prescription Example

You can see that the prescription has a right (R) and left eye (L) which is then broken down into Sph, Cyl and Axis sections with values written in the relevant boxes. There is also a ‘Near Add’ part which is sometimes referred to as the ‘Add’ or ‘Addition’. This value should always be the same for both your right eye and left eye and you need to enter this value if you would like reading spectacles.

When you have chosen a pair of glasses simply select the correct values for each of the boxes paying particular attention to the + (plus) and – (minus) fields. This is very important. If you enter -3.00 and your prescription is +3.00 your lenses will be incorrect. At we check each prescription carefully for any obvious mistakes and may occasionally contact you to verify the details; however, we cannot take any responsibility for information that has been entered incorrectly.

Please note: that if you do have a Prism value in your prescription then please contact us via email on or call: 01644 30 2020 as we need further information. Also, please make sure that your prescription is under 2 years old. Regular eye examinations are recommended not only to ensure your spectacles are accurate and providing the best possible vision but also as an important part of your regular health care.
