Your PD is the distance between your pupils. It is measured in millimeters and is essential in aligning your prescription with your eyes to give you the crispest, clearest vision. Most PDs fall somewhere between 52-68 with the average being 62 for women and 64 for men.
The easiest way to obtain your PD is to call the store where you last purchased glasses - they should have your PD on file.
