In order to buy a pair of glasses here on Umizato, you will need your PD or pupillary distance (aka interpupillary distance). We recommend that you get it when you get your prescription from an Eye Care Profressional (ECP). Here is a break down of what states require your ECP (e.g. optometrist) to measure and give your PD with your prescription. For those of you that want the abridged version (TL;DR) then basically, there are 3 states that require the PD in an RX, and those are Alaska, Massachusetts, and New Mexico.
|Alaska||Yes -- Reference Statute Here|
|Florida||Maybe, Statute is Vague|
|Massachusetts||Yes - Reference Consumer Affairs Here|
|New Mexico||Yes - Reference Statute Here|
|Rhode Island||Maybe, Statute is Vague|
