Anti-reflective coating (also called "AR coating" or "anti-glare coating") improves vision, reduces eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look more attractive.

WHAT IS A PD AND HOW DO I TAKE IT?

Your pupillary distance (PD) is the measurement of the distance between your pupils.  This is needed for the manufacturer of the eyeglasses to know where to place the optical center on each lens, so you can see well with the glasses.

1.   Place a millimeter ruler directly under the center of your right or left pupil so that the ruler is horizontal. Stand in front of a mirror, or ask someone else to measure for you.

2.   While looking straight ahead, measure the distance from the center of your left pupil to the center of your right pupil.

3.    Repeat a couple of times for accuracy and use an average for your final measurement.
