About prescription data





Q01. Where can I find my prescription data?
For customers currently using contact lenses.
Your contact lens box contains the information you need such as power, diameter and base curve.
For new users or customers who do not have their contact lens boxes.
  • You need to use the newest prescription provided by your eye care professionals.
  • Once you have purchased lenses, you can find the necessary data on your prescription or contact lens boxes and use that for future orders.
  • You will need to have PWR (power), BC (base curve) and DIA (diameter) information before you can place an order. If you have been prescribed for astigmatism you will need to have both CY (cylinder) and AX (axle) data as well.

Q02.
Are BC and PWR different depending on the lens manufacturer?
Because of global standards, all manufacturers must use the same notation for PWR and BC. However, lens size, thickness, design and processing methods are different depending on the brand and the manufacturer. (If your contact lenses have been prescribed for astigmatism, your view will be different depending upon the manufacturer.) We strongly suggest having your eyes checked as directed by your physician and following his/her guidance on lens selection.



Q03.
Is it possible to use contact lenses if the DIA is different from my prescription data?
We strongly suggest having your eyes checked as directed by your eye doctor and only with his/her agreement should you use lenses with different DIA.



Q04.
I can not find lenses for long-sighted eyes (+) in the POWER list.
We only stock positive-power lenses(+) for multifocal lenses.
We have no immediate plans to stock positive-power lenses(+) other than multifocal lenses.
We regret any inconvenience.
