How to get your prescription

Before you order, you need to have a copy of your prescription. Please note that you glasses prescription and contact-lens prescription are NOT the same. If you have a prescription from the last two years, or year, if you’r 70 or over, you can use this*. If you require a new prescription, please go to your local optician and get your eyes tested. Following the test, your optician is legally obliged to give you a written copy of your prescription.

If your optician is unobliging, and breaking General Optical Council regulations, you might wish to use of the following responses.

Top five responses if your optician won’t give you your prescription:

1. It's a legal requirement. You have to give me my written prescription immediately following my eye-test by law.
2. My work needs it (perhaps as proof of test).
3. My doctor has requested a copy.
4. I would like a copy for my records.
5. I want to buy my glasses from eyebuddy®. You have paid for your prescription so it’s your right to have it.

No PD? No problem

We also recommend that you also ask your optician to include your pupillary distance measurement with your prescription. This is a very simple measurement but is important for a good fit (especially in stronger prescriptions). However, some opticians will leave the PD off your prescription (they do not have to provide this), or charge a fee for it,. However, eyebuddy® also provides an exclusive measurement tool to measure your Pupillary distance (PD), by using our state-of-the-art eyeTry-on (Patent Pending) - a world first.

*These time limits are important because your eyesight may change over time. They are also recommended by joint committees of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO), the Association of Optometrists, and the Federation of Ophthalmic and Dispensing Opticians (FODO).


After 6 weeks use I am still delighted with my spectacles which I ordered with your standard lenses + coatings. It was a joy to use an on-line service offering the possibility of speaking/emailing to named individuals who always took the time and trouble to answer detailed questions about the product, service and T&Cs. Very satisfied!!!
