The Pupillary Distance should not be part of the prescription, it has not in the past been that way and should not be so now. Glasses need to be made by professionals, not the internet, which is what will happen when people receive their pupil distance that way. Unfortunately I have already seen the negative effects of people getting their glasses made online, I will attach a picture of such an example, not to mention the constant barrage of patients bringing in their glasses asking us to check them, wondering why they cannot see out of their glasses.
