Pupillary Distance/Importance of Shopping Local

October 15, 2020

Our world is becoming increasingly web-based. Especially with all the new developments in this world, it may seem like the best idea would be to do most of your shopping online. We want to point out the BIG perks of coming to your local eye store for your glasses and contact needs.

PUPILLARY DISTANCE MEASUREMENT

This measurement is referring to the distance between the center of each of your pupils. It is important to get this measurement just right so that your eyes are able to focus together.

There are two different ways this type of measurement can be taken.

  1. Binocular PD-one number that represents the measurement of the center of one pupil to the center of the other in millimeters.
  2. Monocular PD-two numbers that represent the measurement of each pupil to the center of the bridge of your nose in millimeters.

If you try to do your own PD measurement at home and this measurement is off, it can cause eye strain, headaches, blurry vision and discomfort. This is a tough measurement to get right, especially on your own. We highly recommend letting a professional do it so that you get the right glasses the first time around.

SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS

The backbone of our country started on locally-owned shops. The coronavirus had a massive effect on the survival of a lot of locally-owned restaurants and shops in our area. Consumers like you can have a direct effect on the locally owned businesses around you.

A couple of big reasons to shop local are:

  1. You help stimulate the local economy which has a direct impact on your local businesses.
  2. You inadvertently help local charities because local business owners tend to donate more to local charities.
  3. It will add jobs to the local community. As one small business grows, they are going to need more help.
  4. More small businesses mean there are more choices for you, the consumer as well as lower prices.
  5. You matter more. Like we were saying earlier, we treat our customers like family.
