This sounds like scare tactics and a way to bully you into buying from a high street branch, ok fair enough they have 2 for 1 offer on and maybe I could find some specs there, but I’m wondering if they are allowed to withhold this information? I’ve paid for an eye test and it’s my own personal information so it seems a little odd they can do this?
I do not doubt this reading is important and I do have quite bad eyesight so obviously I don’t want to take any risks in getting cheaper ones that will damage my eyesight further.
Anyone have any more in-depth knowledge or ideas on this?
I have never bought specs from this website but it does give a good discription on how to measure your Pupillary distance
I have bought specs from here three times and found them OK
The first time I bought them I did not know my Pupillary distance and I used the average distance of 63, by the time bought my second pair I new my proper distance (61) but I could not see any difference in the two pairs so i think you don't have to be absolutely spot on with your measurement
