Understanding your Eyeglasses Prescription Form

  • OD
  • and
  • OS

OD stands for "oculus dexter," which is Latin for the Right Eye.

OS stands for "oculus sinister," which is Latin for the Left Eye.

Sphere (SPH):

The sphere value (in diopters) indicates the level of nearsightedness (-) or farsightedness (+).

A positive number (+) indicates farsightedness, while a negative number (-) indicates nearsightedness.

If this section is left blank, it means you have no vision correction needed for that eye.

Cylinder (CYL):

This value represents the amount of astigmatism, if present. It is measured in diopters.

If you have no astigmatism, this section may be marked as "SPH" or "DS" (diopters spherical).

Axis (AXS):

The axis is expressed as an angle (in degrees) that specifies the orientation of the cylindrical correction to correct astigmatism.

Addition (ADD):

This value is typically for people with presbyopia and indicates the additional power needed for reading or close-up work. It's measured in diopters.

This is not required in creating your prescription lenses, so you may ignore this number.

Diopter Sphere (DS)

Indicates that no cylindrical correction is needed for astigmatism. It implies that the person's cornea or lens is uniformly curved and does not require additional adjustments for astigmatism.


If you have eye alignment issues (strabismus), a prism value may be included to help align your eyes correctly. This is typically measured in prism diopters.

Unfortunately, we don't offer Prism Prescriptions as some customers may experience discomfort due to the thickness of the lenses and eventually affect VR Gaming.

Pupillary Distance (PD):

This measurement represents the distance between your pupils and is crucial for properly aligning the corrective lenses.

If you have 2 PD on your prescription, you may input R:28/L:87
