Natural light or bright environment also improves accuracy.

You can use your credit card or any card with a magnetic stripe to measure PD. Stick the card to your lips as the picture shows.
3. Look straight ahead and take a picture of your face
Adjust your camera, look directly at it, and take a picture. Please make sure that we can see your pupils clearly.

Having A Friend Measure Your PD
If a friend is measuring your PD, keep both eyes open and have your friend put the zero on the millimeter ruler over the center of one pupil, then measure the distance to the center of the other pupil.
Have them crouch/sit while you stand so they are out of your field of vision.
Look above his/her head at something approximately 10-20 ft. away.
Keep your eyes as still as possible.
Do not look at the person measuring!
How To Find Your PD Measurement With A Ruler
Put on glasses. Have a felt tip marker handy!
See yourself in the mirror
Mark on your right lens directly over the object
Mark over the object on your left lens.

PUPILLARY DISTANCE (PD) measures the distance between the centers of your pupils. This measurement is used to determine where you look through the lens of your glasses and should be as accurate as possible.

This is the exact size that your PD ruler should be (don't scale it up or down when you go to print).
