The Prescription

At the end of your consultation you will be given a prescription which will look something like the example below.

What does the prescription mean?

The “sph” box means sphere which represents the amount of long or short sight that is present. This could be a ‘minus’ for myopia or a ‘plus’ for hyperopia.

The “cyl” box for cylinder represents the amount of astigmatism that is present. The cylinder may be plus or minus regardless of whether the sphere is positive or negative.

The “axis” box represents the orientation of the cylinder (from 0-180 degrees) and is the angle at which the lens is set into the frame.

The “add” box is the amount of correction that must be added to your prescription for reading glasses.
