Measurements for eye wear are not part of any examination. Any measurements including pupillary distance should be taken in person by an educated and skilled professional who will be making, verifying, fitting and delivering the finished eye-wear.Online vendors simply can't preform the tasks necessary to prepare a medical device (eye wear). They have no way to determine proper frame fit,appropriate lens choice or the multiple measurements needed for each individual. Measurements can vary by frame and lens type. This is something that must be preformed in person. Online vendors depend on delivery services (UPS, USPS,FEDEX)to deliver and dispense eye wear. There is no end verification or proper fitting of the eye wear. This simply is not in the public's best interest.
