Pupilary Distance is the distance between the center of one pupil (the central black dot of your eye) to the center of the other pupil. Measured in millimeters, PD is important as it helps the laboratory technician to accurately create your eyeglasses frames by lining up your pupil with the center of the lens. As for obtaining your PD measurement, eye doctors are generally not legally obligated to give you this as it’s technically not part of the eye exam itself, but something measured for the purpose of creating eyeglasses frames. However, the reason why a doctor or a local optical shop would not give you your PD is because they want you to pay their inflated prices for frames and prescription lenses.
The answer is "No". A local doctor or optical store may tell you that but that is not true. A patient does not have to be wearing the frame for the PD to be correct because the PD is the distance from the middle of one pupil to the middle of the other pupil. Your PD is not going to change if you're wearing glasses, in fact if you have your PD from a previous prescription and you're an adult you can use that PD. Once you become an adult your PD does not change unlike a child or teenager..
