RX Verification (Applies only to U.S. customers)
Federal Law requires us to verify all prescriptions with the appropriate eye care provider. This can happen in two ways,
1. Upload your RX/Prescription.
[在下單的界面, 上載你的驗光師度數證明 或者直接Email份File去520lens@gmail.com]
Either you upload a copy (photo or scan) of your Valid prescription at the checkout page
Alternatively, you can email this file to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your order Name/ID.
OR / 或者
2. Submit your doctor's name & phone/Fax/Email (Recommended)
At the checkout page, you can provide us with the eye doctor's name and phone/fax/email of the issuing authority and allow us to contact them and verify the validity and accuracy of your prescription information. Your eye care provider has 8 business hours to respond to our request for verification. If they do not respond within this time frame we will assume that your prescription is valid and your order will be processed and shipped.
Don’t Forget - Federal Law now requires your eye care provider to release a copy of your prescriptions.
Make sure to get a copy of your contact lens prescription, it belongs to you.
(**你的驗光師有8個工作小時去回覆核實, 如果8小時過後也沒有回覆, 我們會假設您的處方有效, 然後寄出)
How to Read Your Prescription
|OD||-2.50||-0.75||180|| || |
|OS||-3.00||-1.00||180|| || |
| || || || || |
Looking at your prescription for eyeglasses, you will see two headings labelled
- OD: Latin oculus dexter, meaning “right eye"
- OS: Latin oculus sinister, meaning “left eye”
If you have a heading labelled “OU,” which is Latin for oculus uterque, it pertains to “both eyes.”
Other headings that your eyeglass prescription may have include
- SPH (Sphere): The number indicates the diopter (abbreviated as “D") required to correct your vision. The farther it is from 0, the more vision correction you need. A minus sign (-) in front of the number indicates myopia (i.e. you are nearsightedness). A plus sign (+) in front of the number indicates hyperopia (i.e. you are farsightedness). Here at EyeCandy’s we sell colored contacts that correct only myopia, not hyperopia.
- CYL (Cylinder): This number indicates the diopter required to correct your astigmatism. It can have a minus (-) or plus (+) sign in front of it. The further it is from 0, the more astigmatism you have. If the cell is blank, it means your doctor has determined you don’t have or don’t need to correct your astigmatism.
- Axis: This number ranges from 0 to 180 and shows the orientation of your astigmatism corresponding to the curvature of your eye. Please note that Cylinder and Axis numbers must exist together. Sometimes, the Axis value is separated from the Cylinder value by an “x” (especially in handwritten prescriptions).
