How do I submit my prescription?

All prescriptions are checked by our in house optician to ensure your glasses are perfect! During the ordering process you will have the following options:
How do I find my pupillary distance (PD)?
Your PD is the distance from the center of one pupil to the center of the other in millimeters. This information is necessary to properly center your prescription correctly in your frames. It's important to note that the average PD is between 57 and 65mm. You may have two PD values - one for each eye. It is best to get this measured by your eye care professional. If your doctor did not include your single PD measurement with your prescription, follow these easy steps to find your PD before you start your order:
What's the best way to clean my lenses?
To clean your lenses, it is best to use lens cleaning spray or warm water with plain dish soap and dry them with a soft cloth. Please be careful to avoid using hot water on your lenses (especially if they are high-index lenses), as they can develop bubbles or cracks when exposed to high heat. For day-to-day cleaning of light smudges, a few swipes of the cleaning cloth included in your case should do the trick.
What if I need to get the fit of my glasses adjusted?
Most optical shops are willing to do adjustments of glasses for free. We recommend calling a local shop near you to ask if they'll adjust them. If they do charge a fee for adjustment, DIFF will refund up to $15 of the fee if you send us the receipt.
DIFF can provide you a PDF version of your receipt upon request. You can provide this to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
