Understanding your glasses prescription

Once your eye examination is complete and all the necessary tests have been done, the optometrist will give you a copy of your prescription. This contains the precise measurements of the type of prescription lenses that you will need in order to have the clearest, most comfortable vision.

But what do the numbers and words actually mean?

SPH (sphere)

A+ in the box indicates that you are far sighted which means you find it difficult to see things close to you. The higher the number, the stronger the prescription lenses are required.

CYL (cylinder)

This indicates the amount of lens power for astigmatism. If nothing appears in this column, either you have no astigmatism, or your astigmatism is so slight that it is not really necessary to correct it with your eyeglass lenses.


This describes the lens meridian that contains no cylinder power to correct astigmatism. The axis is defined with a number from 1 to 180. The number 90 corresponds to the vertical meridian of the eye, and the number 180 corresponds to the horizontal meridian.

ADD (addition)

This is the added magnifying power applied to the bottom part of multifocal lenses to correct presbyopia. The number appearing in this section of the prescription is always a "plus" power, even if it is not preceded by a plus sign.

PD (pupillary distance)

PD is the distance between the centers of the pupils in each eye, this is usually measured in millimeters.
