I was very happy with the services I received from Dr. David Diskin for many years. He is a wonderful doctor.
I feel the refusal to willingly share my PD is deliberately choosing to withhold a portion of my prescription for glasses. This is my right to know whether or not you wish to share it. I don't order my glasses from MEI because when I have great insurance (willing to pay $300 to $400) I shouldn't still owe $300 to $400 out of pocket. I can buy great glasses online, just did - $191 for TWO pair.
Pupillary Distance measurements (PD's) are not part of a glasses prescription. The measurement is taken by an optician at the time glasses are ordered. It is not taken by a doctor as is not part of the eye examination. We do have a few patients that prefer to order online. In those instances, an optician in our optical department can get that measurement for you. There is a small fee to do so which is common practice in the profession. We understand it can be frustrating if not completely understood. If you email us at email@example.com, we would be happy to provide you with better literature on the topic. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
