How to Measure Your Pupillary Distance(PD)?
You'll need to know your PD if you want to order glasses from KZFOO. Don't worry if your glasses prescription doesn't include your PD, we can show you how to measure it by yourself.
PD, or pupillary distance, refers to the distance in millimeters between the center of one pupil to the center of the other. Having a correct PD on your glasses prescription ensures that you are looking through the ideal spot in your lenses. If this number was not provided on your prescription by your eye care professional, you can measure it yourself.
Note: Most adults have a PD between 54 - 78 mm. Most children have a PD between 43 - 54 mm. Might be a bit different compared to practical measurements. Please measure your PD 2-3 times to ensure you get the accurate results.
Step 1, Print our downloadable PD ruler

Step 3, Mirror or Friend
Stand 8 inches (20 cm) away from a mirror or a friend. Place & hold the PD ruler against your brow. Keep your face straight.

Step 5, Open Right, Close Left
