 Ocular Centre height tips

  • Only measure the lens, not the frame
  • Use a plastic ruler to prevent scratches
  • If it helps, close one of your eyes to help your focus
  • Brace the ruler against your nose¬†& the frame/lens
  • Left & right¬†are from your perspective, not your assistants
  • Watch your head position- keep it natural tilted back or forward will give wrong reading.
